Q&A With Matthew McGough Author of The Lazarus Files: A Cold Case Investigation

UPDATE 12:20pm: Corrected for spelling. Sprocket
My friend Matthew McGough did a Q&A with journalist Elon Green, which was just published in MEL Magazine.

Matthew's book also recently received a starred review from Publishers Weekly. Having read the book, I wholeheartedly agree with Publishers Weekly: "This memorable and powerful work deserves a wide readership."

I've been very fortunate to travel along with Matthew for most of his journey in chronicling the Lazarus case and its aftermath. I first got to know Matthew during the Lazarus trial seven years ago. We were the only two reporters who attended every day of the trial. It's been a blast to be back in the trenches with him the last few weeks for the trial in the case of Francis v. City of LA. Matthew has been a true friend and mentor to me.

A special thank you to Linda Zaleskie of CNN for treating me and Matthew to lunch the last couple days.

I've heard people have been waiting for updates on the trial. I have been working on my daily recaps so please stay tuned. Today is a big day. The jury will hear closing arguments sometime after 9:30am.
