One of the hardest jobs a journalist will ever do is interview someone who’s just experienced a tragedy. I hated doing it but I did it anyway. In this essay, I explain why. I talk about my interviews with Richard Zapata, who’s daughter Mia was raped and murdered in Seattle in the 1990s. The case went unsolved for ten years, and I interviewed Richard several times during that period. The essay is a chapter in a new book, edited by Peter Laufer, called Interviewing: The Oregon Method. Read the essay here.
