About Us

Imagine being wrongfully convicted for a crime you didn't commit, or imagine your child's killer is still on the loose even though there's enough evidence for an arrest. I want to help shine light on the injustices of our judicial system. I delve into court documents, attend trials, and interview those close to the case to help me tell their stories.

16 Shots: Laquan McDonald

In October 2014, the shooting death of Laquan McDonald by a Chicago police officer went almost completely unnoticed by the media - at least initially. But after a large settlement was made by the City of Chicago to Laquan McDonald’s family, journalists started asking questions. Pretty soon, the details of what happened would be revealed, and Officer Jason Van Dyke would be charged with murder.

In November 2010, a horrific murder took place in Tallahassee, Florida, at the home of a single mom and her three children. Prosecutors contend that one of the children’s fathers is the killer, but at his trial, his defense blames someone else - the Mexican cartel. Was the murder of Brandi Peters and her three children a crime of passion, or a cartel hit? In Part 2, I examine the Defense’s case. Would the jury vote to acquit or convict Henry Segura?
