When you are reporting a story that is filled with twists and turns, the writer dances a delicate dance of what to reveal and when to show it.  This story by WFAA’s Jason Whitely is a great example of how to string the viewer along with a steady feeding of rewards all the way to the end of the story.

I especially like the way Jason does not try to tidy up the end of the story. The fact is we do not know how the couple came by the painting, so don’t speculate.
