Subject was born and bred in
New York City to a large extended Italian family with many aunts,
uncles and cousins. He grew up on the streets but also excelled
all through school earning a scholarship to NYU. He graduated
from High School a year early and graduated from NYU in the beginning
of 1985. Subject was recruited into the DEA and graduated their
academy in that same year. His first operational assignment in
Phoenix, Arizona showed he had a unique aptitude for undercover
narcotics operations. Subject participated in numerous undercover
operations in the southwest United States. After transfer to
the San Diego, California Division subject conducted many unclassified
and classified undercover operations including operations in
Mexico, Panama, Costa Rica and Honduras, earning numerous commendations
from his superiors. Subject was also arrested twice by local
law enforcement agents unaware of his true background. He stayed
in character the entire time and was released for lack of evidence
the first time and skipped bail the second time. Subjects undercover
alter ego is still listed in NCIC and has an outstanding warrant
for Narcotics Trafficking.
Subject's undercover abilities became
noticed by the administration in DC and he was transferred to
the Special Operations Division in the Operations Division in
Washington DC and there conducted deep cover assignments against
high priority targeted organizations including operations directed
by the National Security Council. He also received additional,
related training at a CIA facility in Virginia. Subject also
conducted classified extended, deep cover assignments including
one in which he was undercover for just over two years with no
face to face contact with his case officer. Some of these assignments
included time overseas in Mexico, Belize, Costa Rica, Columbia,
Peru, Ecuador and Thailand. Again subject was extremely successful
in these operations and received numerous commendations from
his superiors. Subject resigned from the DEA in May 1985 after
a deep cover assignment ended particularly violently.
Subject spent a long vacation in the
Bahamas where he was contacted numerous times by the US Marshals
Service in order to provide intelligence on wanted men with whom
he was familiar. His contact in the US Marshals recruited him
as an agent and he attended the US Marshals Academy. Immediately
after graduation, subject was recruited by the US Marshals SOG
unit and with them he conducted numerous operations to capture
wanted felons. Though trained in SOG special operations and high
risk warrant service he was used to better effect as an undercover
operative. Subject left the Marshals service in 1998 but conducted
a few contract jobs for them that year. Subject was recruited
by SOF in September of 1998.
Subject gained a lot of support
from his extended family and was well loved by his younger cousins
and nieces and nephews. He would often entertain them with magic
tricks and is actually quite skilled at them. Subject is very
intelligent but hid much of that intelligence from his friends
and peers in order to fit in better. Subject still is able to
cover his intelligence with his New York attitude. This served
him well in the numerous undercover operations he participated
in. Subject often visited his home neighborhood between assignments
but deftly fielded all inquiries to his job by claiming he was
sales representative for a New York Publishing house. Many of
his contemporaries still think this is his legitimate occupation.
Toward the end of his time with the DEA subject became engaged
to a young woman from his neighborhood. To her and her only he
confided that he was in fact a deep cover Federal agent. He didn't
identify what agency. She kept his secret. Subject began to have
doubts about getting married and bringing a wife into this dangerous
life style. When his then current assignment called him back
to Florida he used it as an opportunity to skip his wedding day.
He tried to write or call but never finished either since he
felt no excuse could justify what he did. Subject probably still
regrets that decision to this day and it has bothered him ever
since. The assignment in Florida turned ugly when the daughter
of the man whose family he was trying to infiltrate was killed
in a turf war between a rival trafficking family. Subject killed
the two attackers but was too late to save the woman who he was
using to get closer to the father. Though the subject did not
love this woman she did care for him very much and he blamed
himself for her death. This compounded by the fiancee he left
at the altar introduced a tremendous amount of guilt he carried
for a long time. The Father of the trafficking family welcomed
him into the family and for a time subject gained some relief
from his guilt. It was later, during the arrest of the members
of this family and the takedown of their entire organization
that an event occurred which precipitated subjects resignation
from the DEA. Subject was assigned to stay close to the oldest
son of this family and ensure he was unarmed and would be taken
without a struggle. Subject asked for this part assignment because
he had become good friends with this son and was afraid he might
engage arresting Federal officers. While the house was being
assaulted and members arrested, the son pulled a hidden gun and
began to fire on the incoming Federal agents. Subject was forced
to shoot and kill the son in order to protect other officers.
Subject immediately resigned from the DEA and no amount of counselling
could bring him around. His superiors at the DEA put him on paid
administrative leave until after his testimony at the trials
were completed but subject still requested resignation. It was
accepted with regret.
Subject sought solace in isolation in the Bahamas. His previous
trips back home had found fewer and fewer friends in his neighborhood.
Now that he had left a bride at the altar he felt he had no home
to go back to. His DEA friends sent an investigating US Marshal
his way because of information he possessed about wanted felons
and also hoped that it might reintroduce him to law enforcement.
They were successful and he joined the US Marshals.
Subject has absolutely no military experience and this may be
a disadvantage with SOF. His undercover abilities however may
prove to be extremely valuable if used correctly. Subject has
also worked extensively totally independent of support or team
mates. His ability to successfully work in a small team remains
to be seen.
