COLD: Computer forensics and the Susan Powell case
Nine years after Susan Powell vanished from her West Valley City, Utah home, more than a terabyte of data from her husband and his father's digital devices remains encrypted -- and therefore unknown to police. But much of what we do know about the case from the top-rated podcast, Cold, comes from data seized from those machines. The FBI has 16 Regional Computer Forensics Labs around the country, and one of them, led by Supervisory Special Agent Cheney Eng-Tow, is in Salt Lake City. From the early days of the Susan Powell investigation, the FBI's Intermountain West RCFL assisted West Valley police in working to uncover what Josh Powell was hiding. Investigative reporter Dave Cawley joins Becky Bruce with a sneak peek at what he's working on in Cold.
Don't get scammed: a cautionary tale
A case ten years in the making has finally reached an end: the fraud trial of Rick Koerber, who was accused of taking Utahns for a million dollar ride through his Ponzi scheme. FBI Salt Lake City Division Special Agent-in-Charge Eric Barnhart dropped by the KSL Newsradio studios to chat about the investigation with Dave & Dujanovic - and since Debbie is also the co-host of FBI Confidential, we decided to share her interview here. In addition to the specifics of this case, you'll learn how to avoid being a scam victim.
Preview: Spy vs. Spy
(AUDIO ONLY) Later this week, we'll roll out a full-length episode with FBI Salt Lake City Division Supervisory Special Agent Benjamin Barron, who investigates counter-intelligence cases. However, with the recent developments involving indictments naming Russian nationals in the 2016 election, accusations of interference and tampering, and now President Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin's joint news conference after the U.S. / Russia summit in Helsinki, we thought it made a lot of sense to release some of our interview early. Here, we've just asked Agent Barron whether the craft of chasing spies has changed over time, and if so, how.
Do you have an active shooter strategy?
AUDIO ONLY: The special agent who trains all SWAT members in the FBI's Salt Lake City Division says if you don't have an active shooter plan, you should get one and start practicing. In an interview with host Sheryl Worsley, the agent (whom we are not naming because he works active cases in the area) talks about how cell phones can both help and hurt in an active shooter situation. He explains the 'Run, Hide, Fight' protocol and explains why police responses to active shooters have changed since the Columbine shooting in 1999. The agent reviews the training required to be on SWAT, some of the specialties that make a robust team and how agents adapt when they encounter innocent civilians or kids in during an arrest. Lastly, the agent talks about the highlight of his career, the rescue of a kidnapped 5 year old boy.
