Longtime Journalist--Angelo Henderson Dies

By  | 

DETROIT (AP) -- A medical examiner's spokesman says Angelo Henderson, Pulitzer prize-winning Detroit journalist, radio host and co-founder of a prominent community patrol group, has died.

Oakland County Medical Examiner's Office spokesman Bill Mullan said Henderson died Saturday in Pontiac of natural causes but no other details were available. He was 51.

Henderson was most recently a host on radio station WCHB. He previously worked for The Detroit News and The Wall Street Journal, where he won the Pulitzer in 1999 in the feature writing category for a portrait of a druggist driven to violence by encounters with armed robbers.

Detroit 300, the crime-fighting organization he helped to lead, consists of residents, civic groups and businesses. They patrol neighborhoods and prompt the public to help police.

He's survived by a wife and son.
