Searching the Past for Evidence

Paul Bieber is a private investigator and law student in California. He has an abiding interest in the investigation of instances of human rights abuses. This summer, he went to Colombia on a 10-day fact-finding mission organized by Witness for Peace, the social justice organization based in Washington, D.C.

With the help of veteran public radio producer Jay Allison and the Peabody-winning website Transom.org, Bieber also is making his first foray into radio storytelling. We’re pleased to be the first to air the result for a national audience, with his piece Scene of the Crime.
