Freelance photographer for WXYZ indicted for murder in Warren

Post by MWmetalhead » Fri Jul 05, 2019 7:26 pm

Fox 2 seemed a little too excited to promote the fact 1 of 3 men apprehended for a murder along Mound Rd - between 13 Mile Rd & 14 Mile Rd - has ties to WXYZ.

What a heinous crime; I used to live fairly close to the neighborhood where this incident occurred.

Police said 23-year-old Christopher Zehnpfennig, a freelance photographer for WXYZ Channel 7, is also a martial arts expert. Police said he took off his shoes during the fight with Klingler and had returned to the scene with another suspect to pick them up.

That doesn't make any sense. If he's a freelancer, that just means he works for whoever the hell commissions him, that doesn't mean he exclusively works with WXYZ.

I saw Channel 7's coverage. They had a slight disclaimer after it, (I'm not sure if that's word for it.)

I can only gather this was an exercise in self-esteem for Fox 2.

Perhaps linking one of the perps to WXYZ (despite no one knowing who the hell the guy even is) makes Fox 2 feel better, knowing that they themselves for many years employed a guy who preyed on teenage boys (Charles Pugh) and a pedophile (Justin Ryan).

It doesn't appear they said he worked exclusively for WXYZ. That's what "freelance" means. But if his work was used by WXYZ on more than one occasion I'd say it's news worthy locally to a degree. I'm assuming he hasn't sold his work to other local stations that anyone has figured out.

Guess there’s an opening at the circle 7 for a freelance photographer.

Help wanted:

Warm body. Most have opposable thumbs and be able to lift 30 lbs. $25/hr. Non-murderers preferred.

Oh, and the $25/hr is firm. You’re not going to make a killing.
