Untested rape kits
Despite new policies taking hold across the country that call for more universal testing of rape kits, I found out Indianapolis tests less than a third of its kits every year. My investigation led me to question a statewide audit of the kits and its accuracy, particularly when it comes to the number of cases which police dismiss as "no crime" or "false report."
Out of Sight AEDs
Life-saving devices called AEDs are becoming a regular part of rendering aid, in addition to CPR. But are they in the places where we most need them in our community? I found places where the devices were misleading or missing. Our investigation resulted in the large public library system implementing the devices in its highly-trafficked facilities.
Unpaid parking tickets
My investigation found major inconsistencies and confusion with the city of Indianapolis' parking ticket system. I used data showing the biggest offenders to illustrate the problem, and talked to people who found the system difficult to navigate. As a result of my investigation, the city did its own digging into old cases and said it was working to modernize as soon as possible.
Do you trust your kids behind the wheel?

This sweeps pieces was the result of months of researching, finding the right people, connecting the dots and putting it all together.
