The dialogue always runs as follows:
Journo: what's been the reaction in the town?
Local: we're all very shocked, this kind of thing doesn't normally happen here.
Journo: what about the killer?
Local: nice guy, kept himself to himself.
I'm genuinely bemused as to what news editors think they're adding to the story by broadcasting such banal guff. If I were stopped in such a situation, I'd be tempted to answer "Pretty laid back, we have a massacre here most weeks." and "We all knew he was a nutter but no one would listen".
