Who Cares Who Killed Harry Potter?

The Beeb are running a story that some "hacker" has discovered which two characters die at the end of the sixth and (hopefully) final Harry Potter book. Why?  If it's not true and just "another theory" (according to the publishers) then why print it? Thinking there is more truth to the story, I did a little searching and came across the website Heckler Spray and its quote about who gets it at the end of the book. I'm in no way interested but the intro from Stuart Heritage makes the article suddenly entertaining:
"Ever since JK Rowling began work on Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows, literally the most important question in the whole universe was 'Will Harry Potter die?' Some said that Harry Potter would die, others begged JK Rowling not to kill Harry Potter and most of us didn't actually care because it's just a children's book and nobody ever made this much fuss over whether Mr Tickle bought it at the end of his book." Magic!
