In 2018, a KUOW reporter covering Aurora Avenue in Seattle when she learned that a rapist was targeting women working in prostitution there. She started looking into this case and then learned that four more men were being investigated for serially raping women on the track. A culture of terror pervaded the track – that’s what this stretch of highway is called – as the reporter developed relationships with working women who shared their experiences. Meanwhile, the police were also getting involved, searching for these men and bringing them to justice.
