    We had an FBI agent in our county(seen him several time, thought he was nice) that murdered his pregnant gf them dumped her body.

    He was the first FBI agent to be convicted of manslaughter.

    Pike County Commonwealth Attorney John Paul Runyon later said the state was lucky to wind up with a manslaughter conviction and 16-year sentence, given the lack of direct evidence against Putnam.

    And despite the long delay, Cheek said the agency deserved credit for its role in bringing Putnam to justice.

    "It's distasteful to us to have to look at one of our own agents," he said. "But, yes, we solved the case."

    16 years.

    Betrayed by love. A movie they made on this.

    Agent Who Killed Lover Ends Sentence
    September 29, 2000|By OLIVIA F. GENTILE; Courant Staff Writer
    He strangled his 27-year-old lover. His wife, a heavy drinker, died at 38.

    But today, Coventry native Mark Putnam, the first FBI agent to be convicted of homicide, will walk out of a Massachusetts prison and begin a new life in Florida.

    This burns me up!

    What a travesty of justice that this man is still young and free to live his life when he destroyed so many lives. I am from KY, and I remember reading about this case. I believe it happened in PIKEVILLE, KY (Pineville misspelling, I believe). I wonder what happened to his children. I hope they are well and happy. I found WS while looking for Kathy and Samantha Netherlands case. Heartbreaking, and no justice at all (yet). Been following Libby and Abby case since it happened. :websleuther:Hope there will be swift justice for these two children.
