Another pet peeve

A headline I found today: 4 Years Later: Man Indicted in Case of Missing Prince George’s Woman. I thought, ooh, a MWAB case. Then: huh, she’s not on Charley. Then: dang diggity darnit, she’s not missing.

I really wish news outlets would not say “missing person” in headlines when the person in question is no longer missing. How hard would it be to substitute “Murdered” for “Missing”? It would be a more accurate headline, and the word is only one letter longer. Hrmph.
