I'm not sure why this case is world news??? Aruba is a peaceful country of less than 100,000 citizens equal in size to Columbia, MD. where four murders were reported last year alone.

a murder isn't "silly" but the amount of news coverage this case gets vs. other murders in the USA is a little lopsided. Las Vegas had a half dozen murders of tourists last year and it never made the news outside of LV.

two murders in ten years? Not too many places in the USA that can claim that low of a crime rate.
