You think perhaps the FBI is behind it?
Betsy printed out Martha's Email and a list of FBI offices around the country.
I explained my tip to the FBI and my follow up extended conversation with Agent Brennan.
We're not doing this for the FBI in any sense.
Brennan confirmed the FBI was approached and questioned about the preponderance of credible tips.
She agreed it was time to beseech the former FBI agent for help.
Later, when I talked to the FBI, they mentioned this turkey we're chasing plays the switch game with plates all the time.
We alerted the state police down there and now that the FBI is excited, there are a lot more eyes looking for him.
"The FBI is all over the place," he said after our mutual greeting.
Half the FBI is chasing him.
The FBI can fill you in better when they get here but this guy's been off the grid since he was released from prison last summer.
The only person I recognized was the black FBI woman from our earlier meeting.
Some hacker might be able to, or the FBI maybe.
I fooled that FBI jerk.
"Before Jonathan-on-the-spot Winston showed up, with his gun blazing," Dean said, as much to change the subject as give the FBI credit.
The FBI built a good case against Burgess.
I was surprised the FBI didn't press us on some of these more prominent cases.
Anderson's got the FBI on the line.
Rita would convey the message to Jonathan Winston as well allowing Dean to temporarily duck having to explain to the FBI why he played cowboy and lost the tail instead of getting the plate number.

One minute they were dead for sure, the next kidnapped or in some FBI safe house.
Like everyone else, he'd hoped Parkside was out of the case and was disappointed to learn the FBI was expecting Parkside's continued assistance in the investigation.
The local FBI had stepped into the picture and hustled action on the body, tentatively identified as Billie Wassermann—perhaps on an alphabetical basis only.
He said he was just asking about Dean's return trip but he was fishing for details on why the FBI was so unexpectedly interested in Billie Wassermann.
Dean wasn't sure what the FBI man had heard, if anything.
Just make sure you play ball with the FBI and don't let your old pals find you.
The FBI had put out a statement they were handling the Wasserman case and pursuing strong leads out of state.
Dean located Jonathan Winston and related what Fred had seen but it was clear the FBI officer doubted the identification and gave only a cursory nod and a promise to look into it.
The same day the station received word from the FBI the gun Dean recovered at Willoughby's had been stolen from a security guard in Connecticut the prior March.
