It's news

People knew who she was, her death was mysterious, therefore it is news.

And she has a line of legal cases behind her.

This stuff was news when the Black Dahilia died, and will be news as long as we have celebrities.

If people think it was different in the past, you need to read how America's newspapers were formed.
