Has anyone else ever heard of this? APBNews.com: The Great Basin Murders Winner, Creative Use of the Medium, Online Journalism Awards 2000. Coverage of the unsolved murders of nine women whose bodies were found scattered across the Great Basin desert region of Nevada, Utah, Idaho and Wyoming. "ABPNews.com made excellent use of the whole palette of media types to cast light on a series of murders, little known elsewhere.
