The DEA Survivors Benefit Fund this week celebrates its 20th Anniversary as a national non-profit charity assisting the families of the agency’s fallen.

Over the years, the organization has spent more than $6.5 million in line of duty death and educational benefits.

“Many SBF supporters have suffered the loss of a friend or colleague or heard the stories of our heroes and felt compelled to assist the children that lost a parent,”  said Chairman Richard Crock, a retired DEA agent.  “No matter what drew you to our cause, this is a momentous occasion and a great time to say thank you for your support.”

“Your generosity and kindness has enabled us to honor DEA’s fallen heroes… to take pride in their courage and sacrifice and to vow to their families that they will never be forgotten.”

GLOCK National Sales Manager Robert Radecki presented a check for $30,000 on Sunday to the fund at the International Association of Chiefs of Police conference in Philadelphia.

A now-famous dossier that has become a lightening rod in the midst of the investigation into possible collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign was funded in part by the Democratic National Convention and the Hillary Clinton campaign.

The Washington Post reports that Marc Elias, a lawyer for the Clinton campaign and the DNC, hired Washington-based firm Fusion GPS to conduct the research. 

Fusion then hired Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence officer with a history of working for the U.S. intelligence community, to investigate the Trump-Russia connection and write the dossier.

Elias and his law firm, Perkins Coie, worked with Fusion GPS from April until days before the presidential election.

The shooter who killed 20 children and six educators at Sandy Hook Elementary School in December 2012 was interested in child pedophilia and began contemplating the attack as early as March 2011, according to newly released FBI documents.

The records indicate there’s no evidence that Adam Lanza acted on his interest in pedophilia.

“The shooter did not ‘snap,’ but instead engaged in careful, methodical planning and preparation,” the FBI’s behavioral analysis unit wrote, according to the Associated Press. “The shooter was fascinated with past shootings and researched them thoroughly. The shooter shared many similar characteristics and behaviors with other active shooters.” 

A document by the behavioral analysis unit indicated that an unidentified woman who had an “online relationship” with Lanza for two years told the FBI that Lanza expressed interest in pedophilia and said it could be “possibly beneficial to both parties.”

The FBI source also said Lanza was obsessed with mass murders and ha meticulously documented them on a spreadsheet.

An 18-year-old man accused of murdering a former girlfriend and coworker in Charlotte, N. C.  in 2016 has been added to the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted Fugitive List.

The FBI believes Alejandro Castillo fled to Mexico after he forced 23-year-old Truc Quan “Sandy” Ly Le to withdraw a large sum of cash from an ATM and then shot her in the head and dumped her body.

The FBI said Castillo was last seen driving into Mexico through a port entry in Nogales, Ariz.

He has since been charged with murder.

Cocaine is making a comeback.

That’s according to a recently released report by the DEA, which indicated that cocaine use and availability are rebounding, Newsweek reports

The DEA has found that coca production has significantly increased in Columbia, the primary supplier of cocaine in the U.S. since the mid-1990s.

“Average farmer profits increased more than 120 percent between 2012 and 2016,” the report underscores. “A Colombian coca farmer tending a mature quarter-hectare field realized some $1,200 in profits in 2016. This rise in potential profits provides the coca farmers with a strong economic incentive to grow more coca.”

President Trump’s nominee to head U.S. Customs and Border Protection has finally begun the confirmation process.
