New Jersey news source The Record was named a finalist in the local news category for the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for a thought-provoking investigation and series of short stories “done by Rebecca D. O’Brien and Tom Mashberg on the heroin epidemic that is sweeping across North Jersey,” according to NorthJersey.com.

The pair worked to expose the drug trade from South America to Northern Jersey suburbs, “profiling addicts and anguished families and mapping the drug pipeline from South America to their community” according to NorthJersey.com.

During the investigation, O’Brien and Mashberg discovered that heroin, once it had crossed national borders, was collected and packaged through mills in suburban homes before being released to dealers on local streets. The finalist nomination is a huge accomplishment for the state’s growing journalism field.
