    Gilbert King, Niskayuna native and Pulitzer Prize-winning author, is the creator of “Bone Valley,” one of the most acclaimed podcasts of 2022. King tells the story of Leo Schofield, who was sentenced to life in prison for killing his wife Michelle in Florida in 1987 and remains behind bars despite the fact that another man, Jeremy Scott, has confessed to the murder.


     


    In the course of 9 episodes, King uncovers startling new evidence that Scott is responsible for a string of murders.


     


    King won the 2013 Pulitzer Prize for Nonfiction for Devil in the Grove, an account of the future Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall’s role in defending four black men falsely accused of raping a white woman in Florida in 1949.
