Investigating a Terrorist
June 12, 2016 is the worst day in Orlando's history. We lost 49 of our neighbors in one of the worst terror attacks on U.S. soil since 9/11.
Two days after the shooting, I uncovered disturbing details about the shooter's plans, his prior visits to Orlando, including a trip to 'case' Disney, and the social media posts he made immediately after the shooting. The details we broke were on all networks within 24 hours of our first reports.
In the months that followed, I reviewed countless 911 calls and hours of body camera footage, and I did the first sit-down interview with the FBI 6 months after the attack.
Now, even years after the tragedy, Pulse remains an important story in Orlando. I was among the first reporters to learn details of the full FBI investigation, that cleared officers of wrongdoing after firing the shots that eliminated the person responsible.
