She has become a modern day martyr, but what really happened to Karen Silkwood?
Karen Silkwood worked in a nuclear power facility owned by one of the nation's largest energy conglomerates. While on her way to meet with a union representative and a reporter from the New York Times--supposedly to present evidence that workers in the nuclear plant were being contaminated--she was killed in a car accident. The documents she was allegedly carrying were never found.
Almost immediately, rumors circulated that her death was not an accident. They have never been quieted. CONTAMINATED: THE KAREN SILKWOOD STORY interviews many people close to the case, including her family's attorneys, the union representatives and reporter she was on her way to meet with when she died and the lead police investigator for the accident. Every aspect of the famous saga is re-examined in this unflinching investigation of the most notorious "whistle blower" story of all time.
On the 25th anniversary of her death, here is the definitive look at the life and death of Karen Silkwood.
