Florida's Sarasota Herald-Tribune ran this explanatory note with its front page story on an inmate's death:

John Edwards was imprisoned at Charlotte Correctional Institution for four days before he died; his death was ruled a suicide. In reporting on the events leading up to his death, the Herald-Tribune has interviewed dozens of people familiar with the investigation. Most of those sources agreed to discuss the case only if their names were not published, for fear of retaliation or retribution on the job. The Herald-Tribune's practice has been to accept anonymous sources such as this one, when the matter is of grave public concern, when the source has a genuine fear of retaliation, and when there is corroborating information available from other sources or documents. Reporter David Green has been reporting on the story of Edwards' death since last summer. The following story is based on interviews, documents and other witness statements.
