For Journalists

Over the last year, The Felony Murder Reporting Project unearthed more than 10,000 felony murder cases across the country, including more than one hundred in which the person charged with the murder did not kill or intend to kill.

The Felony Murder Reporting Project has also collaborated with local, regional, and non-profit national newsrooms around the country, to cover state-specific stories – in Mississippi, Missouri, Indiana, California, and more (in progress!) – and to help examine data in specific jurisdictions.

Contact us at for more information on how to investigate and write on these cases.
