As one who has had a lot of experience and classes in multimedia, I have an eye for photo editing. The first time I saw the pic of the suspect I immediately recognized it as an edited picture, which looked to be altered. My conclusion was they did it to make the image of the person communicate that they are a crazed lunatic (the eyes are a prominent feature to communicate this).
There have been many studies done with photos of people and how the public reacts to them. These kinds of studies are not put to waste, as we see with the photos in this thread.
