About Darkhorse Press

I’m Therese Apel. Darkhorse Press is the beginning of the fulfillment of my dream to make journalism a better profession with a return to old-school crime reporting through the work of passionate and dedicated reporters who are invested in our communities. We will cover Mississippi’s daily crime news, but also focus on unsolved and cold cases, spotlight people who have been affected by the crimes and disasters, and give our consumers a view into fact-based rather than issue-based reporting. We will tell the stories of heroes, victims, villains, and newsmakers in a clear and factual voice of crime and justice that can be lost in the politics of the media today.


“Just the facts, ma’am.” We’ll tell you what we see from ground level. You decide how to feel about it. That’s what journalism used to be, and that’s what we’re committed to giving you.
