Enterprise picked for national journalism project

The Enterprise

The Malheur Enterprise’s reporting on circumstances related to Tony Montwheeler’s controversial release from state control will expand significantly in the year ahead after the newspaper was selected to join a national investigative reporting project.

The Enterprise reported earlier this year that Montwheeler was freed from the state mental hospital after claiming he had long faked mental illness. Montwheeler has been accused of murdering one of his ex-wives and killing a Vale man and injuring his wife while eluding police, all within days of his release from the Oregon State Hospital.
