Lawrence Journal-World: From the Emerald Triangle to the Sunflower State (digital package)

Alma Bahman

Months and months of reporting went into this four-part series, based on court records, interviews with law enforcement officials, examination of official documents and other sources.

I’m so proud and glad I got to contribute digital elements to this amazing story, a complicated jigsaw puzzle that became the biggest drug bust in Lawrence history. I put together the digital package where the four-part series will live online, a timeline of events (using my favorite Timeline.js tool) and a series of trees (using Thinglink and Google flow charts), illustrating the connections between the more than 40 players in the game. I also made the maps used in the print and online versions.
