This week on Behind The Lens, in the days immediately following the death of a 16-year-old autistic juvenile who died while in custody, the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office sought several search warrants in order to dig deeper into the teenager’s past. 

At a budget hearing, the New Orleans Office of Inspector General outlined a wide range of investigations and audits it has planned for city departments and agencies including into several that have come under fire in recent months. 

Our guests this week are Lens reporters Nick Chrastil, Michael Isaac Stein and editor Marta Jewson.
