There Goes the Groom?

Not willing to let the Runaway Bride story go quietly into the night now that Jennifer Wilbanks has turned out to be a fraud and not dead, the media is hot for another story of an engaged person gone suspiciously missing.

To wit:

South Bay Groom Disappears Before Wedding. (Story via NBC4.tv)

One gets the sense that junior news producers and cub reporters everywhere are being ordered to unearth every missing bride or groom story from the last five years in the hopes of breaking a big crime story and ushering in yet another 24-hour news cycle.
