Here’s a look at the team of journalists from The News & Observer and The Charlotte Observer who produced this series.
Neff, 52, has worked at The News & Observer since 1992.
Alexander has written for the Observer since 1993.
She worked with a team of reporters on the 2010 investigative series that found many N.C. infants whose deaths were attributed to SIDS had slept in unsafe settings and possibly suffocated. She has also written award-winning serial narratives about a man who died of cancer at home with hospice care and about one couple’s heart-wrenching decision to bring to term a baby with a fatal birth defect.
