In response to “Killer nanny reinvents self as dance teacher in England” in today’s Boston Herald:
To the editor:
It is unfathomable to me why the Boston Herald thinks that how Louise Woodward is living her life is, or should be, news to your readers.
Every bit of Woodward’s conduct since Matthew Eappen’s tragic death has made it clear that even if she was responsible, it was nothing more than a tragic mistake. She is of no danger to anyone and thus should be of no interest to anyone.
It’s truly appalling to watch an unscrupulous reporter attempting to ruin Woodward’s life by spreading her past around to people who had no need to know it.
Please, leave Louise Woodward alone.
The Herald printed my letter with minor modifications on Friday, June 13.
