Slain editor remembered as loyal dad, free thinker

"The story of Rex Farrance's slaying this month, when the longtime PC World editor was shot to death in his home in Pittsburg, is rife with ironies and contradictions.
Farrance was a patriotic American with the utmost respect for the police, a member of the National Rifle Association and a physical fitness buff who took care of his body, colleagues say. In his death, however, friends and family say he was falsely identified as a possible drug user or dealer. And they say they're outraged that this longtime editor with a solid reputation as a scrupulous fact-checker was tarred by the police, and subsequently the news media, in what they feel was an erroneous rush to judgment."
