Beheaded Body of Woman May be that of Iraqi Journalist

Via Chad at In the Bullpen this Novinite article. The body of the woman maybe that of Raaeda Al-Wazan who was abducted on her way to work at a US funded television station [background here]. This is the first time I have heard that her son was also taken hostage. As of this morning, not a single major media outlet has carried the story:

The beheaded body of a woman has been discovered in the suburbs of the town of Erbil, Northern Iraq, the Iraqi daily Sabah reported. Police say the body might of the journalist who was kidnapped two days ago in the town of Mosul. Raeda Wazzan, a journalist working for a government-funded television station, was kidnapped along with her son, aged 10.
