    Jerome Lorrain and Shane Bozeman – BDSM Murder

    Jerome Lorrain and Shane Bozeman – BDSM Murder

    Retired agent Jerome Lorrain reviews the investigation of the murder of Sarah Willard, a 29-year-old escort/sex worker from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Sarah disappeared in November 2019 and the Pascagoula, Mississippi Safe Streets Task Force (SSTF) worked with Detective Lieutenant Shane Bozeman of the Jackson County Sheriff's Office to investigate her disappearance. They learned that a 54-year-old man living in Mississippi had hired Sarah to be his BDSM sex slave. At first, he denied knowing where she was. The FBI's Cellular Analysis Survey Team (CAST) was crucial to Jerome and Shane’s resolution of this case. Jerome Lorrain served in the FBI for 30 years.

    John Ouellet - Bibliomania Book Bandit, Stephen Blumberg

    John Ouellet - Bibliomania Book Bandit, Stephen Blumberg

    Retired agent John Ouellet reviews his investigation of Stephen Blumberg, the most prolific book thief in the history of the United States. His investigation led John to Blumberg’s three-story, 17-room mansion in Ottumwa, Iowa, packed with antiques and 23,000 rare books and manuscripts stolen from libraries and universities in 45 states and Canada. During the trial, the stolen volumes were estimated to be worth $5 million. However, librarians agree the collection was priceless. John Ouellet served in the FBI for 23 years.

    Jerry Hester – Mafia Miami, Operation Paesan Blues

    Jerry Hester – Mafia Miami, Operation Paesan Blues

    Retired agent Jerry Hester reviews his Paesan Blues investigation, an FBI undercover operation that targeted Italian mafioso Roberto Settineri’s global crime network with the collaboration of the Italian National Police (INP) and, surprisingly, the cooperation of Ponzi schemer Scott Rothstein. After the case review, we discuss Jerry’s new book, Mafia Miami: FBI Politics and How an Investigation was Nearly Sabotaged. The book focuses on the investigation of Settineri, but Jerry also discusses administrative roadblocks he encountered while running the complex investigation. Jerry served in the FBI for 20 years.

Masterful content curation

The insight into FBI case files, guest selection (what incredible women and men), the conscientious interviewing process without any interruption, complete transparency, lack of commercial bombardment… these are just some of the highlights that keep me coming back. More importantly, I am so humbled with gratitude for these incredible men and women that have devoted their lives to service and to keeping the public safe. You are all true hero’s in my eyes.

Episode 300

Avid listener and absolutely love this podcast but I can’t help myself cringe when listening to Christoper Rays interview. He along with the DOJ have weaponized the FBI and that’s why they have a bad reputation. Disgusting!

Loved Ouletta’s case

The episode about Stephen Bloomberg was wild. I really enjoyed listening to this one and I love the enthusiasm from the retired agent who told the story. Attention to detail is amazing among FBI agents and the way their memory brings the story back to life is just amazing. I also love all the links you provide with photos, etc. Great job! You don’t need a thesaurus!
