    Why is his identity being withheld. Is it a dead body they found, unless the charges are not true. If these are facts, imo there is no reason to withhold his identity. I could be wrong. Can the legal experts please help me out?

    Does surprise me the least anyway, this place is a welcome parlour to the good, bad and ugly.

  4. Chris says:

    It is generally accepted practice in journalism (and in many cases the law) to only publish a suspects name and or photo, once he has pled before a Judge or magistrate.
    It is to protect the good name of the innocent.

  5. Investigation says:

    In some cases where the investigators and prosecutors feel revealing his identity would hinder the investigation they would withhold it . Especially for narco related investigations and firearms. So likely this person maybe suspected of much more than what he was charged for .
