Ottawa police detective, dead by suicide, leaves behind wife, infant
An Ottawa police robbery detective who joined the service from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in 2016 has been identified as the officer who died by suicide inside police headquarters on what is already an emotional weekend for city cops and their families. Det. Thomas Roberts, 35, shot himself Friday evening. Interim Chief Steve Bell said police found him “following an incident where we were made aware that he was in crisis.” Roberts had Det. Thomas Roberts, 35, shot himself Friday evening.
OTTAWA — The trail that led investigators to one of Canada’s elite cybercrime experts, a quiet analyst in the national police, began with an email.
Secrets for sale, it said, to a man who sold phones to cartels.
Investigators traced the email to Cameron Ortis, a veteran of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, according to an American law-enforcement official. Last month, Canadian prosecutors accused Mr. Ortis of passing on or offering secrets in 2015, and then gathering information in 2018, with the intent to do it again.

“The news of his arrest has shaken many people throughout the R.C.M.P.,” Brenda Lucki, the police commissioner, said at a news conference. But she suggested that even the Mounties lacked details, saying, “Until we know what we’re dealing with specifically, our risk assessment is fluid.”

Alphonse Gabriel “Al” Capone was an infamous gangster in Chicago during the 1920s and early 30s. Referred to as Robin Hood due to his contribution to charities in Chicago, his reputation was severely tarnished following the St. Valentine's Day massacre of 1929. The FBI started investigating Capone that year after he failed to appear in court. He was soon arrested on tax evasion charges.
Twenty-month-old Charles Lindbergh Jr., son of the famous American aviator Charles Lindbergh and Anne Morrow Lindbergh, was abducted from their family home in New Jersey in 1932. Following his kidnapping, several ransom notes were received by the Lindbergh family, who had an intermediary exchange cash for further instructions on how to retrieve Charles Jr. However, in May a delivery man discovered the boy's decomposed body five miles away from the Lindbergh home. Investigations into the boy's disappearance and death revealed that German-born carpenter Bruno Richard Hauptmann had committed the crime. Hauptmann was tried and found guilty of kidnapping and murder. He was executed by electric chair in New Jersey in April 1936. The case led to Congress creating the Federal Kidnapping Act, which made it a federal crime to transport a kidnapped victim across state lines.
Lori Loughlin Is All Smiles at Country Club Amid College Scandal
Staying positive. Lori Loughlin was in high spirits at the Bel-Air Country Club in Los Angeles on Tuesday, October 1. The Full House alum, 55, was spotted grinning from ear to ear as she arrived at the elite members-only social club, which boasts an 18-hole golf course and multiple tennis courts. She wore a large fedora, aviator sunglasses, a navy long-sleeve jacket, matching pants and white sneakers.
The notorious gangster from Memphis earned his infamous moniker because his weapon of choice was a Thompson sub machine gun. In 1933 he and his gang kidnapped oil magnate Charles F. Urschel. They collected $200,000 for Urschel's exchange, but unbeknownst to them, Urschel collected evidence of the crime during the kidnapping. This was the first major case to be solved by a fledgling FBI under detective J. Edgar Hoover. Kelly was subsequently jailed and spent the rest of his life in prison, including a stint in Alcatraz. He died in prison in 1954.
Better known as Bonnie and Clyde, one of the most notorious criminal duos during the Great Depression. Although it is believed that Parker never fired a shot, they were accused of being involved in numerous robberies, burglaries, auto thefts and murders in the early '30s. The FBI (then known as the Bureau of Investigation) started investigations against Barrow and Parker in 1932 after a series of automobile thefts. On May 23, 1934, police officers from Louisiana and Texas ambushed the duo along a highway near Sailes, Louisiana. They are shot and killed after Barrow attempted to flee.

The Depression-era gangster led a group which was accused of robbing 24 banks and four police stations (apart from being involved in other illegal activities) across several states. Dillinger managed to escape from jail twice, including once when he used a wooden gun and convinced guards that he was armed. His notoriety gained the attention of the press, and the public was interested in knowing the gang's activities. The FBI was monitoring the gang, but Dillinger had not broken any federal laws until he stole a sheriff's car and drove it across state lines. The Bureau began to close in on Dillinger and in 1934 an informant gave him up. On July 22, Dillinger was shot and killed by three federal agents outside the Biograph Theater in Chicago.
The infamous bank robber was nicknamed Baby Face Nelson due to his appearance and small size. A member of John Dillinger's gang, he helped the gangster escape from jail in Crown Point, Indiana. He was accused of killing three FBI agents, including Herman Hollis, who was one of the agents involved in killing Dillinger. Nelson was named public enemy number one after Dillinger's death and was killed just before his 26th birthday in a shootout with the FBI in 1934.
Actors and actresses with famous mothers
A lot of people go into the family business. However, not everybody’s family business is acting. Many actors have followed in the footsteps of their family members, including, in some instances, their mothers.
On Jan. 15, 1947, the body of Elizabeth Short, posthumously known as “the Black Dahlia,” was discovered severed in half in a vacant lot in a Los Angeles neighborhood. She was 22 years old and was working as a waitress. The incident was widely reported due to the gruesome nature of the crime. The case garnered nation-wide attention and around 150 suspects were questioned. Ultimately the case ran cold and remains unsolved to this day.
On March 29, 1951, Ethel and Julius Rosenberg were convicted of espionage for sending atomic secrets to the Soviet Union. At the time, the U.S. was the only country with a nuclear weapon. The Rosenbergs appealed the conviction and the case eventually moved to the Supreme Court, which upheld the death penalty for the couple. During the appeals process sympathy grew for the couple and Pope Pius XII called on then President Dwight Eisenhower to stay the execution. Eisenhower denied all requests for clemency and the couple were executed by electric chair at Sing Sing prison in New York on June 19, 1953.
In 1953 a 14-year-old paper boy for the Brooklyn Eagle was paid by one of his clients with a 1948 nickel, which turned out to be hollow. When the boy dropped it, the nickel broke and there was a small photographic negative inside it. The boy spoke about the coin to the daughter of a New York Police Department employee, who informed the FBI of the negative. The Bureau spent four years trying to decipher the coded message on the negative. However, in 1957 a KGB agent named Reino Häyhänen defected in Paris and gave the FBI information needed to crack the code and uncover the names of his two contacts in New York (one had already made his way back to the Soviet Union). In October of 1957, Rudolf Ivanovich Abel was indicted on three counts of espionage and sentenced to prison. In 1962, Ivanovich was exchanged for CIA pilot Francis Gary Powers, who was imprisoned in the Soviet Union.
Burger King has apologized to a blind woman with allergies
Burger King has issued an apology to a blind customer after staff refused to tell her the ingredients of a brownie out loud. After Hall told staff about her nut allergy, she said, they claimed "company policy" meant she had to read the menu herself. "I was shocked," Hall told BBC. "Had I eaten it and it had nuts in, I would've had a major asthma attack and ended up in hospital. In today's day and age, you'd think they would want to read it and get it right." Burger King has since said there was no such policy and the company is "looking into this matter further," as reported by BBC.
Although 14 attempts were made by prisoners to escape from the famed San Francisco Bay federal penitentiary between 1934 to 1963, the only one that garnered public attention was the one made in 1962. Three men, John Anglin, Clarence Anglin and Frank Morris (pictured), escaped from the prison using maintenance tunnels. The trio had placed wax sculptures resembling themselves on their beds to buy time before the guards noticed they had fled. They used rafts made from raincoats and paddles made from scrap wood and attempted to cross the bay. Although it is highly unlikely they were successful, the trio were never found and most likely drowned during the escape. The FBI officially closed the case in 1979 and the fate of the three inmates remains a mystery.
In 1963, the famed crooner's 19-year-old son, Frank Jr., was kidnapped from his room at Hurrah's Lake Tahoe. Frank Jr. was released two days later after his father paid a ransom of $240,000. The FBI soon arrested three suspects – Barry Keenan, Johnny Irwin, and Joe Amsler. All were tried and convicted. They received lengthy prison terms of which they only served partial sentences.
On Thanksgiving eve in 1971, a man known as D.B. Cooper hijacked a flight from Portland to Seattle. After landing in Seattle, he released 36 passengers in exchange for $200,000 in cash and four parachutes. Cooper kept the crew hostage and instructed them to take off again and fly to Mexico City. Sometime after take-off, Cooper jumped off the plane and disappeared into the night somewhere between Seattle and Reno, Nevada. Although majority of the money was never recovered (a family hiking near the Columbia River found several bills from the ransom in 1980). His identity and the whereabouts of the money remain a mystery to this day. In 2016, the FBI announced it was no longer actively investigating the case.

The granddaughter of newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst, Patty was kidnapped in 1974 by a terrorist group known as the Symbionese Liberation Army (SLA). Almost two years after her abduction, she was arrested, tried and convicted for bank robbery and being involvement in a series of crimes with the SLA. Hearst claims to have been brainwashed and that she was coerced into joining the group's criminal activities. She was sentenced to seven years in prison. President Jimmy Carter commuted her sentence in 1979 and she was released from prison. President Bill Clinton gave Hearst a full pardon on his last day in office in 2001. Since her release, Hearst has appeared in film and television roles, most notably in several of John Waters films.
The child prodigy and a famed mathematician was convicted as a domestic terrorist after he mailed or hand-delivered 16 bombs that killed three people and injured 23 others over 17 years. He graduated from Harvard and earned his M.A. and Ph.D. from the University of Michigan. Kaczynski was an assistant professor at U.C. Berkeley for two years before quitting his academic life and secluding himself in a cabin in the Montana wilderness. In 1978, he began the bombing campaign deliberately including false clues to throw authorities off track. Before he was discovered and arrested in 1995, the FBI used the term "Unabom" (UNiversity and Airline BOMber) for the case, which the media turned into the moniker “Unabomber.” The case turned out to be the longest and costliest investigation in the history of the Bureau.
On Feb. 18, 2001, Robert Philip Hanssen was arrested and charged with committing espionage on behalf of the intelligence services of the former Soviet Union. Hanssen, a veteran FBI counterintelligence agent, was caught clandestinely placing a package containing highly classified information at a pre-arranged or “dead drop” site for pick-up by his Russian handlers. He pleaded guilty to 15 counts of espionage on July 6, 2001 and was sentenced to prison without the possibility of parole. Hanssen is considered the most damaging spy in FBI history.
The Mounties have not said who they believe was the intended recipient of information cited in the charges. But the path to Mr. Ortis came out of the case of a businessman convicted of helping criminals in the United States, according to the American law-enforcement official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because he is not directly involved in Mr. Ortis’s case.
The tip emerged from an American investigation into another Canadian, Vincent Ramos, who was arrested last year in Washington State. Mr. Ramos was accused of using his company, Phantom Secure, to sell thousands of encrypted cellphones, supposedly impervious to wiretaps and other surveillance techniques, to drug cartels and other criminal groups.
While searching his emails, investigators found one offering to sell secrets that law-enforcement agencies had about Mr. Ramos and his clients, the American official said. The email contained a sample of the information for sale — two or three pages of the Mounties’ file on Mr. Ramos — and it was traced to Mr. Ortis, the official said.

Experts said it was unclear why an intelligence analyst of his stature — the director general of a special cybercrime unit, with a high-level security clearance — might try to make a deal with an equipment supplier like Mr. Ramos. And those who knew Mr. Ortis said they were shocked to learn of the charges against him.
“The behavior he’s alleged to have engaged in would go against everything we ever saw of him,” said Chris Parry, a journalist who met Mr. Ortis while he was a graduate student. “This guy worked 15 years in the service of the country when he could easily have taken well-paid corporate positions at any time.”
But Mr. Parry also noted how private he was and compared him to Superman’s alter ego, an unassuming journalist with a secret life. “Clark Kent is the best way to describe him,” he said. “In looks and physique, but also in terms of secrecy and genuine dedication to work for the public good.”
He appeared to have no social media accounts aside from a LinkedIn profile that says he speaks Mandarin and was an “adviser” to the Canadian government. He said so little about his professional life, Mr. Parry said, that he assumed Mr. Ortis worked for Canada’s version of the C.I.A., the Canadian Security and Intelligence Service.
Mr. Ortis joined the government in 2007, when the intelligence division of the Mounties was expanding to confront cybercrime and terrorism. He arrived with a Ph.D. from the University of British Columbia — he wrote a dissertation on the misuse of the internet by criminals in Asia, as well as potential ways countries could combat it — and quickly impressed those he met.
Angus Smith, who retired last year as the Mounties’ senior intelligence adviser, said that when Mr. Ortis arrived at the agency, it was immediately clear that he was an exceptional recruit.
Business, technology, internet and networking concept. Young businesswoman working on his laptop in the office, select the icon security on the virtual display.
“I was always impressed by his intellect,” he said, as well as “by the level of rigor that he would bring to conversations about whatever the issue of the day happened to be.”
Like many, if not most, intelligence analysts with the Mounties, Mr. Smith and Mr. Ortis were classified as civilians. Though they did not carry guns, have badges or wear uniforms, they were active participants in investigations.
From the beginning of his time with the Mounties, Mr. Ortis had a view of Canada’s most sensitive secrets, said Wesley Wark, a visiting research professor at the University of Ottawa who studies intelligence and national security. Then in 2014, he said, the Mounties’ cybercrime team was moved into a larger unit, which by then was under Mr. Ortis’s direction. Simultaneously, its budget and role were greatly expanded.
The result was that the Mounties became the leading agency in cybercrime efforts in Canada, he said, “and sitting of the center of it all was Cameron Ortis.”
