DICKINSON — Galveston County sheriff’s investigators are searching for two suspects in the slaying of a man whose body was discovered early this morning in a dry ditch near a residential area in Dickinson.

A burning pickup truck belonging to the victim, whose name is being withheld by investigators, was discovered about an hour later in Webster, sheriff’s spokesman Maj. Ray Tuttoilmondo said.

The body, with at least one bullet wound in the chest, was discovered about 4 a.m. in the 2500 block of Hill Avenue near the Dickinson Motel, Tuttoilmondo said.

Tuttoilmondo said details about the slaying, including the possible motive and a description of the suspects, were not yet available.

I have to admit, this is the best piece of journalistic integrity I have seen in years. No, really. This report does not lie, it does not slant, and there is no bias. In fact, it contains absolutely no information at all; yet there it is … in print.

+1 for the Houston Chronicle.
