Joanna Yeates: Daily Star Renames Her ‘Joanne Yeates’ In Rush To Nail Pizza Killer

by | 11th, January 2011

JOANNA YEATES: Before the Daily Star’s Typo Of The Year  a question: who sent the police a note written on piece of A5 paper in black ink and delivered to the Bristol Ram pub?

The note contained a scrap of pizza wrapping – not from the missing pizza one Joanna Yeates bought before she was killed. It features a bogus address and telephone number. It is not signed.

How do the press interpret this note?

The Sun leads with news of the hoax pizza box letter.

“SICKO SENT PIZZA BOX TO JO PUB”

Sicko!

The Mirror writes:

Sick pranksters sent a hand-written note containing a pizza label to the pub where murdered Joanna Yeates was last seen alive.

Prankster!

The Daily Express leads with the one-name headline – because Joanna is now like Diana and Maddie, a one-word news story:

“Joanna: Mystery of the pizza label posted to a pub”

Mystery!

But it’s top prize to the Daily Star, which forgets the dead woman’s name in its rush to yell:

“JOANNE ‘KILLER’ TAUNTS COPS”

It adds:

A senior police source said: “It is a truly astonishing development. It could only be interpreted that they were some how trying to taunt people over what they’d done.”

Really?

“But it could be a massive mistake. The letter would give us the individual’s handwriting and possible fingerprints.”

Good job everyone’s fingerprints are on file, so too samples of their handwriting…
