The Fed, the Mobster, the Mistress and the Reporter

The case against former FBI agent Lin DeVecchio, alleged co-conspirator in four mafia murders, ended abruptly last week after Village Voice reporter Tom Robbins showed up at court with exculpatory evidence. Robbins dug up two ten-year-old cassette tapes that impeached the credibility of the prosecution's star witness, and then wrestled with whether to come forward.

There is a technology known as voice morphing which can clone a person's voice. While I have no way of knowing if that is what was done to get Delvecchio off the hook in the 11th hour of his trial, however I do know that FBI agents regularly intimidates witnesses into recanting testimony which does not serve the FBI's interests, will perjure themselves while under oath and if necessary use psychological warfare to drive those whom it is attempting to silence, to commit suicide.

If Delvecchio is guilty of complicity in the murders of these four men, and he had been forced to strike a deal, he may well have implicated many other FBI agents in crimes equally or more serious than the ones which he had been charged with.

While we will never know if Delvecchio is guilty, a former FBI agent by the name of John Connolly was convicted on similar charges to those which Delvecchio was arrested for.

And it does seem rather convenient that this tape should have shown up when it did.
