I confess, I don't know much about Nancy Grace. Apparently she's a prosecutor who has a television "talking head" show on CNN Headline News.
Grace, in a September 7th interview apparently grilled the mother of a missing baby, which relatives claim drove the woman to commit suicide.
Over at Hit and Run, commenters are calling Grace "a monster", among other nasty things.
Not to be cold here, but what did this woman expect? According to the CBS article linked above, Grace has been doing this for a while; she's actually infamous for it. Additionally, the mother wasn't able to answer basic questions such as "Where were you before the child went missing?" And now I am supposed to bash Grace and be sympathetic to the mother for it?
It is undeniably sad that the mother killed herself; it also very tragic that the child is still missing. But beating up on Nancy Grace is a cheap shot: this is how she does her show! Now, my understanding of Grace is that I probably wouldn't like her, her style or just her general outlook on life. But if you're going to come onto a show with a former prosecutor who still grills guests that are suspects in crime, you had damn well better be prepared to answer a simple question like "Where were you shopping before the child went missing".
My two cents: it sounds like Grace blew open holes in this woman's story, and the guilt of whatever the mother did with her son and the fear of getting caught pushed her over the edge. I admit I don't have enough evidence for any sort of definite conclusion, but that's the feeling that I am getting. I hope I am wrong.
