Sarah Mervosh is an investigative reporter at The Dallas Morning News.
She works to uncover the truth and give voice to the vulnerable. Her favorite stories are about ordinary people and moments, which so often reveal something deeper about ourselves and the world we live in.
Sarah has been a member of the paper's investigative team since 2017. Before that, she worked as an enterprise reporter, courts reporter and a general assignment/criminal justice reporter. Her focus areas have included domestic violence, the Baylor sexual assault scandal and race and diversity.
Her work has had an impact: A story about Dallas County's weak domestic violence policy prompted officials to begin confiscating guns from abusers. Another story prompted a brokerage firm to drop its lawsuit against a 93-year-old with Alzheimer's disease. Her reporting also held the Dallas County district attorney accountable when she hid a stint in rehab from voters and later mysteriously stopped coming to work.
Sarah has also covered some of the biggest breaking news in Texas in recent years, including the 2016 Dallas police shooting that killed five officers and the 2013 fertilizer plant explosion in West, Texas.
Sarah joined The News in 2012, after graduating summa cum laude from the University of Notre Dame.
