A Mother's Murder
In 2009 Amanda Stott-Smith dropped her 2 children from a bridge. Her 4 year-old son died while her 7 year-old daughter survived. Stott-Smith was arrested a few hours later and is serving a 35 year prison sentence. Almost a decade later, after years of investigation - journalist Nancy Rommelmann chronicles this tragedy in a delicately balanced piece of reporting illuminating and offering a deep and nuanced look into how such a crime can occur, with perhaps even hope of averting future incidents. Rommelmann is featured in The NYTimes, LA Weekly and The Wall Street Journal.
