For three weeks in October 2002, the nation’s capital region was paralyzed with fear as a series of deadly sniper attacks killed innocent people across Virginia, Maryland, and Washington DC. This week we have partnered with the FBI to bring you this episode and commemorate the 100th anniversary of the first African-American agent to join the Bureau. Together with a very special guest from the FBI, we delve into the case of the notorious DC Sniper.
On November 8, 2019 the FBI will celebrate the 100th year since the first African-American came in as a Special Agent to the Bureau.
