Today in headlines: Fear factor

Hey, kids! Wonder why the hed says "break in murder case" and "believed linked to burning death" when the lede says this?

The hunt for the killer of a 19-year-old Mississippi woman who was burned alive last year has resulted in the arrests of 17 suspected gang members, authorities said this week, though none have been directly linked to the woman's death.

Maybe it's because of the second graf:

FBI officials announced the arrests Tuesday of suspected members of the Black Gangster Disciples, Vice Lords, and Sipp Mob street gangs, according to The Clarion-Ledger newspaper.

Funny, here's how the original source of the morning's fourth most important story put it:

Officials say the operation focuses on Panola County and is a byproduct of the deep investigation that has come through the probe into the death of Jessica Chambers. ...

Panola County Sheriff Dennis Darby said Tuesday's arrests are not directly related to Chambers' death but to information gathered as authorities have interviewed more than 150 people and sorted through more than 20,000 phone records trying to find her killer.

Don't they have a term for this at Fox? It's just not coming to mind right now...
