Description

When a prominent District Attorney was brutally murdered near Bakersfield, the Californian set out to cover the court case. But instead, the newspaper was faced with a veil of secrecy protecting any records of the case from the public eye. After a lengthy process, the paper received the documents it was looking for, and wrote an informative piece about the high-profile case.
