Welcome to eastern Iowa’s new hub for crime and courts news!

Here you’ll find news, follow-ups and enterprise on crime in this half of the Hawkeye state, plus stories from across the Midwest. We might throw in a few other stories of national interest, too, just to shake things up. But, most importantly, we’ll discuss the methods and background of our important crime stories and let your interests and concerns help guide our coverage.

Open season has begun. Enjoy.
