The F-word

Jim Duell's daughter was murdered. You may have seen the news. Her name was Tania Nicol. She was one of five women killed in Suffolk in the month before Christmas 2006.

Most media outlets covered the victims' families' reaction to the life sentence handed down to Steve Wright - calling for the death penalty to be reinstated. But I've only found one that's covered Jim Duell's thoughts:

"I forgive him. If I didn't, I would be consumed with anger and hatred. I'm not going to visit him in prison and make friends, but I made a decision to forgive him. It wasn't easy but it has helped me."

It would seem the F-word remains out of bounds for most newspapers.

(Unless of course, Duell's been misquoted!)
