Pat Landers, 32, of Baldwinsville, New York, and Karla Baca were gunned down in Juarez, a border city just south of El Paso, Texas, while driving a Jeep with New York license plates, according to KTMS.

A regional federal education administrator reported that Baca had had just returned to her teaching job on Monday after a six- month leave out of the country.  

This is still an ongoing investigation, and no further information is available at this time.

Lawyer Sean Carolan was found guilty of all six counts including perverting the course of justice, aiding a criminal group and attempting to gain a financial advantage.

Robert Cipriani, also known as Robin Hood 702 (the Las Vegas phone area code) had blown $2.5 million in cash he was meant to be laundering at the Star Casino for international drug trafficker Owen Hanson.

Nicknamed "O-Dog", Hanson is serving a 21-year jail term in California for drug trafficking, racketeering and money laundering.
Hanson, a former US Olympic volleyball player, had imported 100 kilograms of cocaine into Australia and was laundering the proceeds by having Cipriani convert the cash into gambling chips, play black jack, then have the remaining chips converted into a cheque that would be redeemed at a Las Vegas casino.

Cipriani, whose business class airfares to Sydney had been paid for by Hanson, had already received a handsome payment for previously laundering $1.5 million for Hanson.

However on this day, Cipriani blew the lot. CCTV footage showed Hanson, accompanied by Carolan, in a heated confrontation with Cipriani at the casino. After promising to hand over his passport, Cipriani promptly caught a taxi to the airport and bolted. But not before making the call about the gun that was to bring them all undone.

  • Ret. FBI Agent Arrested For Allegedly Taking $200K In Bribes Linked To Organized Crime

LAFAYETTE (AP) — A retired FBI agent from Lafayette was arrested Friday for allegedly taking more than $200,000 in bribes to pass law enforcement information to a lawyer with ties to organized crime, prosecutors announced.

Babak Broumand, 53, was arrested on a charge of conspiracy to commit bribery of a public official that was filed in Los Angeles federal court, the U.S. attorney’s office said in a statement.
Broumand could face up to five years in prison if convicted. It wasn’t immediately clear whether he had a lawyer who could speak on his behalf.

Broumand spent 20 years as an FBI special agent before retiring last year. Prosecutors said that from 2015 to 2017, while working on national security matters at the San Francisco field office, he received gifts and cash averaging $10,000 a month.

The bribes came from a lawyer with links to Armenian organized crime, prosecutors alleged.

In return, Broumand “would perform official acts and omit to do acts,” providing protection and information to help the lawyer “evade detection by law enforcement,” according to an affidavit in support of the criminal complaint.

Among other things, Broumand revealed an FBI investigation into a client of the lawyer who last month was convicted in Utah in connection with a $1 billion fraud scheme, according to prosecutors.

Broumand used some of the bribe money for a down payment on a $1.3 million vacation home near Lake Tahoe, authorities said.

Broumand also accepted gifts including an expensive motorcycle, hotel stays and escort services, according to prosecutors.

The allegations are disturbing, but “we found no evidence to suggest this went beyond an isolated incident,” Paul Delacourt, assistant director in charge of the FBI’s Los Angeles office, said in a statement.

Broumand currently works as a staff investigator at the University of California, Berkeley, handling whistleblower allegations of “improper governmental activities” and investigating sex harassment and sexual violence allegations, according to his LinkedIn profile.
