WSB-TV Investigative team: Exposing a new twist on the foreclosure epidemic

Jodie Fleischer, Josh Wade and Sonja King share how their old-fashioned, shoe-leather reporting — and some serendipity — lead to “Stealing Houses”, an eight-part investigative series on “sovereign citizens”. In this new angle on the national foreclosure story, the WSB-TV investigative team revealed how these sovereign citizen groups were illegally laying claim to million dollar homes in the Atlanta area.

Fleischer, Wade and King relied on mountains of documents — police records, affidavits, promissory notes, and more — to build this story. Their reporting has lead to more than a dozen arrests in the Atlanta area.
