Viewers can talk live about potential investigative stories with WTOL's 11 Investigates team from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday.
If you believe you have a tip on government corruption, criminal injustice, or consumer fraud, we would like to talk to you. You can reach a team member by calling 419-725-1600.
11 Investigates is an award-winning investigative unit that has been honored with the Regional Murrow Award for three consecutive years. We recently received an Investigative Emmy for a three-night series on the 2011 murders of Johnny Clarke and Lisa Straub in Holland, Ohio. Videos associated with that series have been viewed more than 1.3 million times, and the investigation resulted in retesting of evidence.
Our May investigation into sexual assaults inside Cedar Point housing units has led to a restructuring of the relationship between the Cedar Point and Sandusky police departments, with Sandusky assuming all policing duties.
We have been a state leader in reporting on COVID data and holding leaders accountable in reporting that data accurately.
In 2019, we devoted a 30-minute special to a 1998 murder that has resulted in two men receiving court permission to seek a new trial after 23 years in prison.
And recently, anchor Jeff Smith went to bat for residents of Maumee who have been hit with unusually high water bills.
Our team believes in use all of our platforms to give a voice to the voiceless. But every fight for change begins with someone having the courage to provide the tip to get the investigation started. If you need help or know of wrongdoing, reach out to us on Tuesday.
