About
Scott Higham is a member of the investigations unit of The Washington Post. Since joining The Post, he has examined the deaths of foster children, waste and fraud in Homeland Security contracts, the treatment of detainees at Guantanamo Bay and Abu Ghraib, and conflicts of interest on Capitol Hill. The foster care project received the Pulitzer Prize for investigative reporting and the Robert F. Kennedy Journalism grand prize. The Abu Ghraib project was a Pulitzer finalist for national reporting. Higham and his colleague Sari Horwitz also examined the murder of Washington intern Chandra Levy. That 13-part series led to the arrest of the true killer in the case and became the basis for a book, “Finding Chandra: A True Washington Murder Mystery,” which was named as a finalist for an Edgar Award by the Mystery Writers of America.

Before joining The Post, Higham worked for the Allentown Morning Call, the Baltimore Sun and the Miami Herald, where he handled government beats, criminal courts and investigative assignments. He is a graduate of Stony Brook University and the Columbia University School of Journalism.
