Veteran journalist Carl Hoffman believes he’s solved one of the great mysteries of the 20th century.

Report Praises Changes In Ohio’s Youth Prisons
A new report is praising Ohio’s approach to reducing its juvenile prison population.
The Department of Youth Services now houses fewer than 700 inmates, a third of what Ohio used to hold in juvenile detention centers.
The report from a department-appointed monitor says programs for placing young offenders in community centers have produced what it calls impressive results.
The report is part of a court-order review system stemming from a 2004 lawsuit that alleged a culture of violence at Ohio’s youth prisons.
