Retired agent Warren Flagg served 22 years as a special agent with the FBI and, before his appointment, an additional five years as a fingerprint filing clerk and FBI Headquarter tour guide. During his agent career, he worked white-collar crime cases in the New York Division. In this episode of FBI Retired Case File Review, he reviews a pet cemetery scam he investigated where burial grounds containing up to 250,000 carcasses of deceased dogs and cats were discovered in the woods behind a pet memorial park. The subjects, a father and son, were convicted of mail fraud based on the premiums they collected to individually bury or cremate pets when they instead dumped them into mass cremations and burials.
Following his retirement, Warren Flagg formed Flaggman Inc. a private investigative and film consultant firm. Over the past 20 years ago, he has worked as a technical advisor on TV and films with Woody Harrelson, and the writers of the Show Time series SLEEPER CELL starring Michael Ealy. He can be contacted via his website Flaggman Inc.
