Headline was verified

“Headless body in topless bar” killer denied parole – chicagotribune.com.

Great headline in print in the New York Post in 1983 also works for the Web because the words are specific. The Tribune story said the Newsday headline read “Night of Terror.” That worked on a newspaper page with the context of other words and pictures, but it is too general for a good match in a search engine.

The story goes that the New York Post sent a staff member to verify that the bar had topless dancing. The Poynter story explains it.
