    Charlie Price – Artful Interviews, Confessions and Signed Statements

    Retired agent Charlie Price reviews several artful interviews and techniques he used to obtain confessions and signed statements from white collar, counterintelligence, and enemy combatant subjects. He developed an expertise and was asked by his fellow agents and Bureau management (both in the field and at FBIHQ) to conduct subject interviews on other agents' cases (not an everyday occurrence). Charlie obtained confessions that led to the convictions of three sitting members of congress, white-collar criminals, corporate executives, lawyers, CPAs, child pornographers, bank robbers, drug dealers, enemy combatants/terrorists, and a spy.

    In this episode of FBI Retired Case File Review, retired agent Richard Velasquez reviews his Disney theme park fraud case against Thomas Lucas Jr., who concocted a story that the Disney Company would build a theme park called Frontier Disney DFW in North Texas. Lucas Jr. used this false information to solicit doctors, lawyers, professional athletes and others into investing in the land surrounding the alleged Disney site, assuring them that when Disney announced plans for the theme park, the new landowners would become instant millionaires. Investors lost over $60 million in the scheme. Rick is the author of Texcot: Dreams, Lies and Fraud, his account of the FBI investigation that finally brought Lucas Jr. to justice.

Jerri is awesome!

Jerri is a perfect podcaster in every way! Such an educational, intriguing, interesting podcast, and her voice and delivery are perfect, in my opinion.

Hoosier Nikki ,

Great pod!

All good stuff. I’m really enjoying all the episodes but I highly recommend episode 245 in particular. Thanks for everything FBI agents do for our country.

Agilk9 ,

Excellent podcast!

This is such a great podcast! I love the fascinating case reviews and appreciate the research that Jerri does before each episode. I was especially moved by the two cases reviewed by Kevin Rust . His respect for the victims and for finding justice for them despite the length of time since the crimes, made me cry. FBI agents like him are truly American heroes.
