    What do you expect. They make a living on throwing out the news no matter how bad it hurts the family they still want to report it. Never getting the facts straight. Hopefully this family was notified before the news aired it. Not every family gets that lucky. Last accident reported of mountainburg man killed the news sprang the name of the deceased out before NOK was notified so the family had to hear about their loved one from the news. Crying shame. My thoughts and prayers to jake,Cheryl, and the rest of the Bentley family.
