Death of unpopular kid goes unreported by media

A 15-year-old boy murdered by a gang of bullies in Ilford, Essex, has gone completely unnoticed outside the immediate community as major news outlets failed to report it at all, since the child wasn’t liked much by his peers or particularly bright.

Bringing the story to press was initially made difficult by the failure of his parents in producing a photo of the boy where he is smiling, who has been described as “heinously un-photogenic” by his English teacher. But when the victim’s poor academic credentials and perception as a bit of a loner came to light the story was deemed entirely unworthy of the news. In an interview the Daily Telegraph remarked that it was “a shame he was the victim – he would’ve made a great murderer.”
