Description

In May 2018, a nation stuck in an endless cycle of mass school shootings watched yet another massacre play out in a small Southeast Texas town at Santa Fe High School, where a 17-year-old gunman killed eight students and two teachers. The shooting left the community stunned, but unlike the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida three months prior, the incident quickly receded from public consciousness. But long after the dead were buried and the cameras had left, there were still those reckoning with what happened that day and it’s not just the family and friends of the victims – it’s the people that came to do their jobs. For three women at the Galveston County Medical Examiner’s Office, keeping professional and personal lives separate is essential. This time, leaving their work at the office would prove impossible.
