Title: UNLAWFUL PERSUASION
Angie opened her notepad. "So, are you suggesting he may have broken into the FBI computer network before?"
"Well, he certainly found his way around quickly. Either he's exceptionally good at it, or he's been in here before."
Burke cleared his throat. "He told me he hacked into the University system where he found those phony encrypted messages."
Angela raised her head. "Hold on Dave, I'm not sure we can call those phony just yet," she said.
The man in the pinstripe suit let out a sigh, and shrugged his shoulders. Angela wondered who the mystery man was.
"This doesn't make sense to me," she said. "Why would someone open a case with the FBI, and then break in and delete their own case file?"
Mister pinstripe was now fidgeting in his chair. What the hell is his problem? He was starting to piss her off.
She looked back at Dinkins. "Are you sure it was done from his apartment?" she asked.
Mister pinstripe looked around the room. "Excuse me," he said, "I feel I need to jump in here. The evidence clearly points to this Riley fellow. It's obvious, to me anyway, the initial case he reported was just a ruse. The break-in was this guy's way of telling us he knows better than we do."
"Um, just who the hell are you?" Angela blurted out. Her supervisor gave her a cold stare.
