I am proud to announce that on June 24, 2012, my article “The Lazarus File” for The Atlantic magazine won two Los Angeles Press Club awards. The SoCal Journalism Awards annually honor the best journalism written or produced in Southern California.
“The Lazarus File” (June 2011 issue of The Atlantic) was named best magazine article of 2011 in two categories: News Investigative and Feature Writing. My history of the LAPD’s Cold Case Unit, “Not Forgotten,” (November / December 2011 issue of Miller-McCune) was honorable mention in the News Investigative category.
I am grateful to the LAPD, my editors, and everyone who spoke with me while I was reporting the stories. It is a real honor to have my work recognized by my peers.
