Sometimes We Hear the Victims' Stories

Today's Post article, "13 Days, 14 Homicides: Each Victim In the City's Violent July Has a Story" laments:
Their cases received little attention compared with the slayings of a convenience store owner, a community activist and an aspiring British politician. But they created the same kind of anguish for the people they knew.

True, but can we now expect WaPo and other local media to give us this kind of detail going forward? Though doubtful, this piece does offer some insight into the lives of those murdered in the past two weeks - victims' whose names were likely found only in MPD press releases.
