Anatomy of a Killing in Cameroon

A movie shot on a phone went viral last July. It shows two women, a little girl and a baby escorted by several soldiers. The soldiers smack a women in the face. They blindfold the women, and shoot all of them dead.

With a team of open source investigators gathered on Twitter, we looked into the footage, over and over, looking for clues. Eventually we managed to find out where the killing happened, when it happened and who did it.

It ended up being a big hit and was picked up by many many outlets. The government still hasn’t responded.
