The Herald reports the death of Jennifer Maiola, managing editor of the Boston Guardian, from breast cancer.
Maiola, who also worked at the paper's predecessor, the Courant, was known for her police reports.
Tracy Strauss, a friend from grad school, recalled her stories about riding with both police and EMTs, and added:
She loved mysteries. We'd often sit in a cafe drinking hot chocolate or tea & conjure up the backstories & relationships of the people we saw at nearby tables. Missing her dearly.
