Left home at 16. Worked as a server, flower delivery courier & a lampshade factory worker. Graduated magna cum laude from Temple University in 1987 with a journalism degree. There's more than one way to grow a journalist. She's .
Shout out to for this nice profile she did of me in today’s NYT. I guess I got to change my damn cell phone ring. via ⁦
identified +80 Epstein victims, spoke to many of them & cops who worked on case. She discovered Acosta led team which cut illegal deal. She revealed new info, revived case. At times, she paid expenses out of own pocket. Journalism matters.
You know, just enemies of the people trying to crack a cold case of a serial child molester and sex trafficker who happens to be friends with the president of the United States
Miami Herald reporters investigating Epstein "tried to keep costs down by renting less-expensive rooms at Airbnbs, booking low-cost flights and occasionally not filing expenses."
Prosecutors on the Jeffrey Epstein case owe a lot to , the Miami Herald reporter who accumulated so much documentation while investigating the financier that she filled up her spare bedroom with papers.
Great profile of a remarkable reporter. My favorite part is she spent $100 sending certified letters to Epstein, his lawyers, and others, tracked his flights and showed up at his home, all to get comment — shows her determination to be fair and accurate.
Such an important lesson: sometimes the best time to dig into a story is when everyone else thinks it’s over. “There were all of these puzzle pieces out there, and when you put [them] together, with the passage of time, there was this really damning story”
An actual journalist doing actual journalism in tireless pursuit of alleged paedophiles she believed to be getting away with crimes as opposed to standing trial for them. Absolutely inspirational. And not a pathetic paypal plea or whining video in sight.
“This is what happens when a reporter refuses to give up on a story” Incredible work by
“In April, Alan Dershowitz, who helped broker Epstein’s plea deal, wrote a public letter to the administrators of the Pulitzer Prize urging them not to reward what he called ‘fake news and shoddy journalism.’” via ⁦
The Jeffrey Epstein Case Was Cold, Until a Miami Herald Reporter Got Accusers to Talk. Love this on our wonderful colleague
THE PROFILE WE’VE BEEN WAITING FOR! “She modeled her work off ‘what a cold-case detective does.’ She combed through 100 pg police reports for names & identifying details that hadn’t been redacted, creating spreadsheets to track her progress”
So was told the story was stale. Good thing she followed her Philly instincts. Or are those Miami instincts now?
Love this paragraph about the Miami Herald reporter who dug into Epstein’s plea deal. Wait for it.
For an example of painstaking journalism at its finest, forcing the world to remedy a horrible injustice, you can't beat 's pathbreaking work on Jeffrey Epstein and sex trafficking, leading to his new arrest. This is why journalism matters.
Imagine a world where reporters didn’t have two years to pick through the puzzle pieces of a damning story
This story about Julie Brown, without whose labors Epstein would be free today, is a good reminder what a public resource is being lost by the destruction of regional and local newspapers:
This, in the end, is the point of investigative journalism. Would be a shame if our societies could no longer afford it
An inspiring story about the Miami Herald reporters investigating Epstein... that also has this very bleak section about journalism today

The reporting of for put the nation's attention on the case of serial child rapist Jeffrey Epstein—and her story is epic in and of itself. Good to see her getting this kind of notice for such meaningful journalism.
“This is a search for the truth.”
This is a great article, but includes what may be the most depressing paragraph about modern journalism I have ever read.

She felt she had to “work harder than almost anybody to get the big stories.” This week, the world saw the hard work of ( '87).
Julie K. Brown, the relentless Miami Herald reporter who broke the Epstein story, is why independent journalism is the rescuer of the people, not the enemy.
Enemy of the people? Hardly. Remember this courageous, tenacious reporter the next time someone rich, powerful and corrupt tries to malign the messenger. via
Great behind-the-scenes interview with the journalist behind the investigation that unravelled Jeffery Epstein.

The Jeffrey Epstein Case Was Cold, Until a Miami Herald Reporter Got Accusers to Talk
I’m so happy to see getting the recognition she deserves for her reporting. She has been one of my favorite reporters for years: her stories on the horrors of the Florida prison system are also must reads.
The best local journalism can have global effects—and can even get more clicks than the flatulence story. Wonderful detail in a fabulous profile.
Great story by (my former Honors English colleague!)
