Kate Mather


Kate Mather covers crime, police and breaking news across Southern California. A native of Lawrence, Kan., she studied journalism at USC before first joining The Times in 2011. She was part of the team that was a Pulitzer Prize finalist for its coverage of the deadly May 2014 rampage in Isla Vista, Calif. As a fifth-generation Kansan, she’s probably heard every “Wizard of Oz” joke out there.
