Posted: 11/04/15

An Oregon woman opens a box of Halloween decorations she bought at her local K-Mart and out falls a note pleading for help, written by a man in a Chinese prison camp. How does this happen?

We helped Hallahan repurpose his article in FTI Journal, for Thomson Reuters News and for Supply & Demand Chain Executive.
