Is The Sun right to use Madeleine McCann to promote its website?

Maybe I'm being unusually sensitive, but I find The Sun's latest promotion for its website unbearably tasteless:

"It's the terrible mystery that has gripped us all – what really happened to Madeleine McCann? In tomorrow's 12-page special pullout, The Maddie Files, we reveal:

The bungled investigation into her abduction… how Maddie's twin siblings are getting on… how Kate and Gerry manage to keep strong.

PLUS the full Maddie story in an exclusive ebook ONLY for Sun+ members. If you're not already a member, join now."

Am I alone in thinking that this lure to attract subscribers amounts to an intrusion into grief for commercial ends?
