Show Notes

On today’s show, we have Morgan Wright. Morgan is currently the co-host/co-producer of the Game of Crimes podcast with Steve Murphy of Narcos fame. 

Previously Morgan was a Senior Advisor in the US State Department Antiterrorism Assistance Program, taught behavioral analysis at the National Security Agency, and spent a year teaching the FBI how to conduct internet investigations. 

Besides 18 years in state and local law enforcement as a highly decorated state trooper and detective, Morgan was a technical advisor for the show America’s Most Wanted for 1.5 years. He holds a patent for how to use publicly available information to solve crime, and just received a grant from US DOJ - COPS office - to build the National Center for Open/Unsolved cases. 

He’s just finished up his first thriller novel and is now working on the second installment.

In today’s episode we discuss:

·      How Morgan became interested in law enforcement and his early days as a Kansas State Trooper. 

·      Morgan’s career as a detective and the successful interview and interrogation techniques that he used.

·      Teaching F.B.I. Agents on how to conduct internet investigations.

·      His time as an advisor for the television show, America's Most Wanted. 

·      Starting the National Center For Open and Unsolved cases. 

·      The wildly popular podcast, Game of Crimes.

·      Morgan Wright’s new thriller novel.

 All of this and more on today’s episode of the Cops and Writers podcast.
