Before he moved full-time into investigative reporting four years ago, Chris Fusco spent many nights and weekends working the Chicago Sun-Times City Desk as a relief editor. More recently, he's been involved in some of the newspaper's biggest projects, including a series that led to a manslaughter indictment against a nephew of former Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley and another that exposed widespread disabled-parking cheating at parking meters, prompting a new law that's expected to save Chicago taxpayers tens of millions of dollars a year. His work has been honored locally by the Chicago Headline Club, Chicago Bar Association and Chicago Journalists' Association and nationally by the Association of Capitol Reporters and Editors.
