My daughter and grandson were shot and killed by her

My daughter and grandson were shot and killed by her husband, he then killed himself. I have custody of the 3 remaining children age 15, 13, & 8. I am trying to sell the family home (which is all the children have). and the WRAL TV station still has it as a top story. If you type in*****Clayton, NC, its like it happened yesterday not 6 years ago. It is preventing the sale of the property. As soon as they look on line, it's a NO. Can I some how make them take it off the top or at lease take out the videos and a play by play description of the incident. Maybe a letter from an attorney will make them do something. Otherwise I going to have to give the house away and they will have NOTHING. I did email the news station, no results Could you help me.Thank You, *****

An online and print magazine in Florida decided to print a

An online and print magazine in Florida decided to print a 'public call-out of an abuser' based on a hearsay claim. They used the full name of the accused, the first name of the accuser, and coordinated with the accused's ex-wife of 10 years. The accused is a Native American activist who is very controversial and the accusers are all white. The 'statement of solidarity' concludes with a list of 80 names of people supporting the accuser, along with grandiose discussion of abuse in order to justify this libel. There appear to be both civil and criminal ramifications if it can be proven that the accusation is specific (the person is named, which he is) and is presumably false (no one filed charges). He is somewhat of a public person, does he have any protections under the law from these false claims? http://www.dmlp.org/legal-guide/florida-defamation-law

My sister is an ER nurse. She was working one night when a cop came in and while she was working on a patient requested assistance. She jokingly said not my patient I don't like cops you take him. He wanted a Neosporin swab. The tech got the swab. When my sister was done she got up to get the swab but the tech had done it. She said Oh, I was going to get it. Tech said, I did it. she said, I was going to do it when I was done. My sister always kids around ER is a very tough gig especially at that hospital which is in the highest crime district. She has a great rapport with the staff, first responders and police BUT this cop FOLLOWED her around to patients rooms after he was administered aid from the tech. My sister didn't say a word to him. He got on the phone and called his wife, so did his partners wife. They launched a Facebook attack on my sister that went viral asking that she be fired and have her license revoked. They also posted on the police blog even worse things. She is afraid for her life. She resigned. She has had a heart attack on the job working on a patient. 6 yrs oncology. 18 yrs ER. THEY have posted all kinds of vile, nasty things. What is our recourse. They are saying reveal her name and address. Let's get her.
