Why did media initially ignore illegal alien status of man who killed Indianapolis Colts player?

According to the Indiana State Police, the crash happened shortly before 4 a.m. Sunday along the westbound lanes of I-70, just west of Holt Road.

The post goes on to say:

The Indy Star has since “updated” their story to include the actual truth about the ILLEGAL ALIEN who had no business being in our country who took the lives of two innocent American citizens.
