Gainesville Daily Register
Wednesday’s front page story on the death of a five-year-old boy contained more detail than necessary from the sheriff’s office report about the unusual truck accident that caused the tragedy.
This occurred because an unedited version containing much of the investigating officer’s narrative was inadvertently published.
The Daily Register apologizes to the boy’s family – and to our readers – for any anguish these story details caused them. Out of respect to the family, they should not have been published.
We have expressed our regret, apology and condolences directly to the family.
To you, our readers, we promise to learn from this experience and we will strive not to repeat it.
