Case 86

Amy Allwine

*** Content Warning: suicide themes ***

When FBI agents received word that online hackers had cracked their way into the dark web and uncovered an Albanian murder-for-hire organisation known as the Besa Mafia, they never expected their investigations would lead them to the quiet suburbs of Cottage Grove, Minnesota. 

After reading through the Besa Mafia’s emails, the FBI had reason to believe that 43-year-old dog trainer Amy Allwine was in trouble. They travelled to Cottage Grove to warn Amy and her husband Stephen that someone might want Amy dead. The Allwines were incredulous. The story they were told sounded too far fetched to be real.
