The investigative prowess of reporters and editors working on The Chauncey Bailey Project was applauded by The New York Times:

[The Project] has had a deep impact on the city’s public life, revealing a jailhouse videotape that suggested a wider conspiracy in the murder and which the police seemingly ignored, and helping force the resignation of the Oakland police chief, Wayne Tucker.

The group has said that much of its work is done, but it says it will not shutter the operation completely until the investigation of Yusuf Bey IV, a son of the founder of the bakery, has been completed.

Congratulations to reporters Tom Peele, Mary Fricker, and Bob Butler, and the many others who have contributed to the project.
