Corrections: Gender, trash math, minority recruitment
There are several corrections or clarifications from the January 10 cover story, "Missing: Inside the Dashad Smith investigation."
•The Hook primarily referred to Smith's friend Kash Carson as "she" but used "he" in several places. Carson is a gay man and is not transgendered but prefers to be referred to as female.
•The proper name for the citizen council created to improve communication between police department and citizens is the Citizen's Advisory Panel.
•The 3,000 cubic yards of trash was within an area Charlottesville Police Sgt. Marc Brake estimated to have been 100 by 100 feet by 20-feet deep.
•The article states Charlottesville Police Chief Tim Longo and a member of the Citizen's Advisory Panel have already visited Virginia universities to recruit minorities. Those visits will begin this spring.
