Peoria Journal Star: Use of better picture rather than a mugshot

Sometimes people tend to judge a person by their mughshot. I saw photos of people who were killed within the last year and just about everyone had a mugshot except for 3. Why does a mugshot need to be used? For people who don't know them they would they think that they were some type of cold hard criminals, because thats kind of what you think of when you see a mugshot in the paper. Why can't these people that have been killed at lease have a better picture used. Then the artricle goes on to say that 4 were domestic violence murders well which 4 because when you see all mugshots and 3 regurlar pictures you're only going to think that they were  the ones killed due to  domestic violence. I have seen  for years that the mugshots have been used but why not change that now.  There are so many forums out there and its so many racial people that make nasty remarks. This stuff opens up old wounds for their families.
