NPR, Frontline, and Pro Publica have completed their investigation into infant deaths, and yesterday they reported “an alarming pattern of people accused of killing children based on flawed medical evidence.”
You can find the story in a variety of media and versions:
- Pro Publica has published its story on-line, with many clickable links to supporting documents: Pro Publica story
- The full Frontline episode is still available on video: The Child Cases
(for a handy transcript, click Transcript at the bottom of the page, or click here: transcript)
- NPR offers both a print version of the story and urls to the Morning Edition and All Things Considered clips: NPR story page

If you’ve ever met Heather Kirkwood (the pro bono attorney in one of the cases covered), you will know the kind of thorough, focused commitment that went into finding the evidence, recruiting the medical experts, and pushing Ernie Lopez’s case with the courts. Heather is also rumored to have opened the doors to today’s broadcast interview with Norman Gulthkelch on Morning Edition.
Alas, I didn’t quite know about it in time to participate in this morning’s on-line chat on the subject.
Here’s to finding a path to justice through careful thought about difficult subjects.
