A series of stories about the death of Christopher Lee Wood, a 26-year-old diabetic who died while he was an inmate in the Cherokee County, North Carolina jail. He died "hours after his parents pleaded with 911 dispatchers and jailers to give their son life-saving insulin." The county's chief jailer refused outside efforts to save Wood and she was later fired and charged with manslaughter. The series found jailers did not provide medical treatment to Wood as they are required to do by state law.
