Some of the stories shed light on the "heroin epidemic that consumed many young Vermonters," and other articles focus on the deviant activity of a Burlington businessman who has been taking tens of thousands of pornographic pictures, some of underage girls. The coverage starts with a story about the death of 16-year-old Christal Jones, a ward of the state who died in a seedy New York apartment, and whose fate has been kept from the public by the state officials.
