You can speculate that the problem was 'caused' by the employer being mean and unreasonable if that suits your agenda. You can speculate that the problem was 'caused' by the helper being crazy and superstitious if that fits your agenda. You can then extrapolate a lot of 'connections' from this. Of course, none of us actually know what happened, probably we never will, and even if it turns out to be one or the other, both, or neither, it doesn't really tell us anything much about the situation in general. It will just be the details of this particular tragedy.
The only thing that's clear is that this kind of journalism - mindless speculation masquerading as analysis - is unfortunately becoming more and more prevalent.
