From the Emerald Triangle to the Sunflower State
The inside story of Lawrence’s cross-country drug pipeline
This four-part series is based on court records, interviews with law enforcement officials, examination of official documents and other sources. Efforts have been made to contact all principals in the case, or their attorneys, most of whom declined comment or did not respond. This research and reporting provides many pieces of a very complicated jigsaw puzzle that stretches from Kansas to California.
