A News Tribune reporter investigated the death of an adopted ten year old boy "who died under suspicious circumstances while fishing on a creek in Northwest Washington state on Oct. 9, 1999." The story focuses on how this child could be placed with a foster family who had a history of domestic violence and financial problems. In addition, the investigation investigated "the boy's death after detectives learned the parents had taken out $650,000 in life insurance on Shawn about a year before he died." Reporters also "questioned the thoroughness of the police investigation into Shawn's death and the difficulty small police departments sometimes face in handling complex cases."
