Retired agent Barry Black was assigned to the Oklahoma City Division where he investigated complex financial crimes for the first half of his Bureau career and was a sniper on the SWAT team, before being certified as a Special Agent Bomb Technician (SABT). In this episode, he reviews two cases, the first a medical supply investment fraud case, which was featured on an episode of Unsolved Mysteries. For the second, he reviews the initial investigative steps he took as a bomb tech responding to his first post blast crime scene, the Oklahoma City Bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building, where the lives of 168 people, including 19 children were lost. Barry shares how that tragic event shaped his career and led to his being recognized as a Master Bomb Technician. Barry Black served in the FBI for 31 years.
