He then went to work undercover around the world, including Russia, the Middle east and Belarus performing many covert operations.
The account of his life in The Triangle Exit is fascinating and almost unbelievable, a tale of coming from the dark side of crime to become widely respected by law enforcement agencies and the global intelligence community. Infiltrating not only the Italian Mafia, but also the corruption of the Russian Mafia and its stronghold in every state in the US, their illegal activity runs the gamut from stolen cars, phony charities, false ID’s, passports, visas, stealing state secret, child porn, illegal arms, money laundering, narcotics, fraudulent insurance claims, medical bills, cyber crime and on and on.
This is the first-hand story of one of America’s most interesting covert FBI operatives. From infiltrating corrupt labor unions to Russian Mafia and international arms smuggling. This story will surely fascinate anyone interested in international politics, espionage, arms smuggling or the American, Italian and Russian Mafia.

A Washington state couple were convicted of manslaughter Monday in the gruesome starvation and hypothermia death of a teenage girl they adopted from Ethiopia.

A jury found Larry Williams, of Sedro-Woolley, guilty of first-degree manslaughter, while his wife, Carri Williams, was found guilty of homicide by abuse as well as manslaughter. The jury also convicted them both of assault and each faces a possible life sentence.

Hana Williams died in May 2011 in the backyard of the couple's home, where she was forced to stay as part of a strict system of child-rearing outlined in a Christian parenting book.
An autopsy showed that Hana died of hypothermia that was aggravated by chronic gastritis and malnutrition.

Her bone-thin body was covered in bruises, including a lump on her shaved head, and red bloody markings on her hips, elbows and face.

Defense lawyers argued that questionable parenting practices don't necessarily amount to a crime.

Hana is believed to have been 13, but no documentation of her birth in Ethiopia was available. The trial was postponed several times and her body was exhumed in January.

The jury began deliberating last week. On Monday, they announced their decision to convict both the Williams' of first degree manslaughter.
The class A felonies can mean life in prison and/or $50,000 fines, according to the Skagit Valley Herald.

The jury was unable to decide if Larry Williams was guilty of homicide by abuse. In the end, only Carri Williams was convicted on that charge.

Both Larry and Carri were also convicted of first degree assault on Hana's adopted brother Immanuel.

Tests on Hana's teeth and bones gave varying estimates and experts were unable to agree on her age.

Her age was significant because the homicide by abuse charge applies only if the victim was younger than 16, though experts were unable to say for sure if she was or was not.

She was adopted in 2008.

A foster mother testified during the trial that the couple's other adopted son Immanuel was rail-thin and covered in scratches when she took him in.

The testimony from Sheila Jackson came on day 18 of the Williams murder trial.

The couple left their 13-year-old Hana, to starve and die in the cold after brutally punishing her and her step-brother, Immanuel.

Jackson, who is deaf, told the jury in a Mount Vernon courtroom that when the Williamses’ son Immanuel, who was also adopted from Ethiopia, came to live with her, she could barely keep up with his demands for food

'He ate fast. He ate a lot. He ate more than I expected,' she told on the stand, the station KIRO-TV reported

Following the couple's arrest, Child Protective Services removed Immanuel and seven other children from their home.

Sheila Jackson said the boy was terrified to talk about his adoptive parents.
According to the foster mother, the child was so emaciated that his ribs were showing through his skin covered in markings from past beatings.

Immanuel, now 12 years old, testified during the trial that the Williamses beat him and Hana with belts and switches.

The parents kept the family isolated from non-relatives, home-schooled the children and followed strict religious principles described in the Christian parenting book titled ‘To Train Up a Child,’ investigators said.

As punishment for bad behaviour, the teen told the court that he and his step-sister were fed frozen meals, hosed down and forced to sleep in closets, where they would listen to recordings of the Bible on tape and Christian music

The defense has attempted to paint Immanuel as a disobedient boy with an attitude problem.

The lawyers for the couple said Immanuel hit and bit Jackson’s daughter so badly that her teacher ended up calling CPS after the child came to school with bruises.

Sheila Jackson said that Immanuel has been getting counselling and his behaviour has been improving.

In 2008, Immanuel was 7 years old when the American couple, both devout Christians, adopted him and Hana from Ethiopia. Larry worked at Boeing while his wife was a stay-at-home mom home-schooling the two adopted kids and their seven biological children.

In his testimony, the 12-year-old told the court that his adopted parents would beat him with a stick until blood was running down his face.

Other disciplinary measures included having Immanuel hosed down in the yard for bed-wetting and keeping him and Hana outside in the cold.
'I would suffer with the pain until it eventually went away,' he said in sign language July 29.

Larry’s attorney, Rachel Forde, characterized the Ethiopian boy as a troublemaker who lied to his adoptive parents and refused to do lessons assigned by his mother.

While the couple's biological children, five of whom had testified during the trial, were generally treated better, the strict rules in the Williams household applied to them as well.

According to Joseph Williams, however, he and his siblings were given the authority to punish and even spank their adopted brother and sister, KIRO-TV reported.

Joseph was called to the stand to describe the night of May 12, 2011, when his 13-year-old adopted sister died.

Joseph Williams told the court that after Hana died while sitting in the yard in 40-degree weather, his mother instructed him to bring the girl's body inside, where she performed CPR and called 911.

The mother of nine said on the call that her daughter Hana 'has killed herself.'
When asked by the 911 dispatcher why she believed her daughter had taken her own life, Williams said that the girl was not breathing and lying face down in the mud after refusing to come indoors, according to the Seattle Times.

Calling Hana 'rebellious,' the mother said that she had seen the 13-year-old throwing herself to the ground and staggering about the yard after taking her clothes off.

A local weather station reported that the temperature that night was 42 degrees.

First responders arrived just after midnight and rushed Hana to Skagit Valley Hospital, where she was pronounced dead an hour later.

An autopsy report concluded that the girl died from hypothermia, with malnutrition and chronic gastritis as contributing factors. According to the girl’s medical records, between 2009 and 2011, she had lost nearly 30lbs and was short for her age.

Larry and Carri Williams were arrested September 29, 2011, on charges of homicide by abuse in connection with their daughter's death, and first-degree assault of a child stemming from mistreatment of Immanuel.

If convicted, each faces a prison term of between 20 and 29 years, according to state sentencing guidelines.

TOLEDO, Ohio – Police in Ohio say skeletal remains found in a box last week are those of a toddler who's been missing since June.

DNA test results released Tuesday confirm that the remains discovered in a Toledo garage are of 19-month-old Elaina Steinfurth.
She was last seen about three months ago inside a house on the same property.

The home and the garage belong to the family of a man who had been dating the girl's mother.

Police say had searched the property several times, but won't say what led them to the garage last week.

The girl's mother and her boyfriend are both in jail after being accused of obstructing justice during the investigation. No charges have been filed since the remains were discovered

(NEWS CENTER) -- The mother of missing toddler Ayla Reynolds is sharing some of the evidence she says police gave her back in January, evidence she believes points to Ayla's father as being responsible for the little girl's death.

Ayla was 18 months old when she disappeared from the Waterville home of her father, Justin DiPietro in December of 2011. Police have said they do not believe she is still alive.

In two weeks, Trista Reynolds is planning to post on Ayla's website all the details of what she says police found in DiPietro's home. But she gave NEWS CENTER a preview Tuesday.

Reynolds is very frustrated with the pace of the investigation into Ayla's disappearance. And she believes if the public knew what she does about the evidence police collected, they would call upon the Attorney General's office to prosecute DiPietro.

Police have said there Ayla's blood was found in DiPietro's home, and that it is more than a small cut would produce. Reynolds said police showed her pictures of Justin's room, where there was blood. His shoes had blood on them. His truck had Ayla's blood in it, and there was saliva mixed with her blood in some places. She said it shows that Ayla suffered, and there was enough blood that she feels it's clear her little girl has died. But it doesn't show a cause. Reynolds believes what she's seen is enough to prosecute DiPietro for something, even if it's child endangerment.

Reynolds said, "When you have a truck that has blood in it when you have things of Ayla's when you have a whole basement with all different things with blood you tell me you don't have enough to prosecute? I don't want to hear it anymore and I don't believe it."

Police will not confirm or deny any of Trista's claims, saying they will not talk about the details of their criminal investigation.

We reached out to Justin DiPietro, who is in the Cumberland County Jail for allegedly violating the conditions of his release on an unrelated domestic violence charge.
DiPietro said "no, thank you" to our request for an interview.

Trista plans to reveal much more about what police showed her on two websites, http://united4ayla.com and http://justiceforayla.blogspot.com"

when will Larry and Carri Williams be beaten, starved, brutalized and dehumanized?when will their blood run down their faces after a beating?when will they lie naked inthe muddy snow while thier organ systems slowly fail after tryiing to digest themselves as a food source?When will the last light they see be the light of the warm house with food as they freeze and starve to death?The answer is NEVER NEVERNEVER!!!!!If lady justice does her job at all both sub human sadistic murderers will spend the rest of their lives in prison with food,shelter, clothing, medical care, counseling,companionship,a library, civil and legal rights, lawyers and advocates of all sorts.The system will ensure that they enjoy all the things that Hanna was never allowed to.The article describes the couple as"devout Christians" and as a devout Christian I take offense! they are sadistic, murdering scum who use religion as their twisted excuse to inflict pain and abuse. Just another pair of wackos who use"homeschooling" as a means to abuse and hide the abuse. Real Christians love and forgive....something they obviously know nothing about.Sometimes I can't stomache the news..but it makes me want to be the best moral, loving compassionate person I can be. It doesn't sound like God was even in that house of horrors...and pathetic CPS...,well as usual...TOO LITTLE TOO DAM LATE!!!As usual prayers for those of all ages who arenot loved, abused, and neglected. look of disgust..followed by long sigh...and pain in heart:(At least now maybe the kids from that home have a chance ....

Aunt: Baby Elaina's mom claims innocence.


Skeletal remains found at a Toledo, Ohio home last week have been positively identified as those of missing 18-month-old Elaina Steinfurth.

Police say the remains were discovered in a box in a detached garage in the 700 block of Federal Street, where the baby was last seen before she was reported missing on June 2.

Angela Steinfurth, Elaina’s mother, told authorities that the toddler disappeared from her ex-boyfriend Steven King’s house on June 2 after she put her down for a nap.

Both King and Steinfurth have pleaded not guilty after being indicted on obstruction of justice charges for allegedly providing false information in the case.

Baby Elaina case: What we know so far

On Tuesday night, HLN’s Dr. Drew talked to Angela Steinfurth’s aunt Tammy Mories.

“[Angela] told me on the phone [last Friday] that she promises she didn't do this to her baby,” she said.

Mories added, "I do not want to think that my niece did this."

Watch the full interview in the video box above.

Attorneys for King and Steinfurth declined to comment on Monday's announcement that DNA tests confirmed the remains where those of Elaina Steinfurth.

Nyad defends herself to skeptics of Cuba-Fla. swim.

Snipped:

Speculation that she had gotten into or held onto a boat during part of her 53-hour journey drove Nyad and her team to hold a lengthy conference call Tuesday night with about a dozen members of the marathon swimming community.

Nyad said it was her understanding of the sport that the first person to make a crossing got to set the rules for that body of water. She said her "Florida Straits Rules" would largely maintain what they all agree on: no flippers, no shark cage, no getting out of the water, never holding on to the boat, never holding on to the kayak, never being supported by another human being or being lifted up or helped with buoyancy.

"It is the only way. The swim requires it," Nyad said. "I don't mean to fly in the face of your rules, but for my own life's safety, a literal life-and-death measure, that's the way we did it."

Nyad said she never left the water or allowed her support team to help her beyond handing her food and assisting her with her jellyfish suit.

"I swam. We made it, our team, from the rocks of Cuba to the beach of Florida, in squeaky-clean, ethical fashion," Nyad said.

Shelly Zimmerman's attorney just gave a press conference admitting that she never actually saw her soon to be ex-husband with a gun the day of their dispute, although she led the 911 operator to believe she had. (Even yelling at her father to get inside in case George started shooting at them). The press conference went on for at least ten minutes before I changed the channel because he (the attorney) was just repeating himself, and I don't care what Shelly Zimmerman has to say about anything. (Her attorney said she was going to read a statement)

Here is my advice to Shelly Zimmerman...GO AWAY! You are not a celebrity, and your divorce is not 'high profile' as your attorney suggested. Nobody cares about your trashy domestic dispute, or your excuses for lying to emergency dispatch and creating a huge LE scene over you getting your junk out of your house. Get a job, get a life, get off of TV...your 15 minutes of fame..or rather SHAME are over!

End rant, lol!

Hello Peter Hyatt, I was wondering if you are going to give your analysis of the Parsons anytime soon? I'm guessing you've been following their interviews and you have probably analyzed their statements at least a little. Please post something about Erica and what you think of the case. Thank you.
