Best headline in recorded history

"How did sex-for-drugs prison arrest turn deadly?"

From I read this amazing headline today. Who could ask for more? Let us run the checklist shall we?
  • Sex? - got it
  • Drugs? - yep
  • Law enforcement? - Prison officials and the FBI
  • Violence? - deadly
  • Famous person involved? - No.

The absence of a famous or semi-famous person makes the story a little less than full feeding frenzy, but the quality of the headline stands.

It doesn't give too much away and it draws the reader in. Huzza for crooked prison guards in Florida and the lucky copywriters at CNN!
