My name is Byron Wilkes and I'm a UC Berkeley graduate student and journalist originally from Mississippi. Before graduating from Middle Tennessee State University in 2009, I was community news editor, opinions editor and editor in chief for the student paper, Sidelines. From there I worked at The Meridian Star in Meridian, Miss., covering the crime and education beats as well as occasional features. I cover the crime beat for Richmond Confidential currently. If you have any tips on crimes that have occurred recently or other events you feel pertinent to Richmond Confidential, don't hesitant to send me an email.
