NY Daily "News" "Reporter" Chris Sommerfeldt's article is a different kind of train wreck

Why is anyone's background relevant in a story like this, and what did this idiot hope to accomplish by posting it?

Better yet, how has this sorry excuse of a newspaper still in business at all?

The third person killed in the chaotic Amtrak derailment outside Seattle was a convicted sex offender under federal supervision for possessing child porn, officials said Wednesday.

****, of Auburn, Washington, died along with railroad employees Jim Hamre and Zack Willhoite after the speeding Amtrak Cascades train they were on plunged off an overpass around 7:30 a.m. Monday.

More than 70 people were sent to local hospitals after the high speed derailment, which occurred during the Amtrak train’s inaugural run between Seattle and Portland, Oregon.

*** died of multiple traumatic injuries, the Pierce County coroner’s office said Wednesday evening.

 The engine is transported from Interstate 5, where it was going 80 mph on a 30 mph curve and flew off the tracks. Pictures showed the train car dangling from the overpass, with multiple cars beneath it.

The 40-year-old was released in 2015 after serving two years in prison for possessing a trove of child porn, a spokeswoman for the U.S. attorney’s office in Seattle confirmed.

After getting out, *** had to register as a sex offender and was ordered to a lifetime supervised release.

The Amtrak train was pummeling at 80 mph in a 30 mph zone when it flew off the rails during the Monday morning commute, investigators said. The derailment remains under investigation.
