Crime

Jailed to Death

More than 150 inmates have died in North Carolina's county jails in the past five years, many of them suicides and a third of them after poor supervision by jailers. A News & Observer investigation uncovers deaths that were ignored and examines the impact of an influx of mentally-ill and drug-addicted inmates who could have been treated elsewhere.

Food & Drink

Good Eatin’, the News & Observer’s weekly visit to local eateries in North Carolina, will continue through Labor Day.
