5/27 - Scott Hingham,

Scott Higham  " Finding Chandra"
In the fall of 2000, a young woman from an upper-middle-class California family left the West Coast for Washington, D.C. to begin an internship at the federal Bureau of Prisons. Chandra Ann Levy was not unlike the thousands of college and graduate students who arrive in Washington as interns each year. She wanted to leave the familiar surroundings of her home in the San Joaquin Valley and find her own way in the nation’s epicenter of politics and power. Seven months after arriving in Washington, Chandra signed off her computer inside her Dupont Circle apartment on a warm spring day and went for a walk in her gym clothes. She was never heard from again.  Six years later, two investigative reporters revisited Washington’s most famous unsolved murder.  Scott Higham is a Pulitzer Prize-winning member of The Washington Post's investigations unit. He has conducted numerous investigations for the news organization, including an examination of abuse at the Abu Ghraib prison, and waste and fraud in Homeland Security contracting. The Abu Ghraib investigation was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for national reporting, and the series on contracting won the Investigative Reporters and Editors award for large newspapers.
