Former FBI Agent to Speak
at Annual Awards Banquet
For twenty years, Candice DeLong was on the front lines of some of the FBI’s most gripping and memorable cases. Some have called her a real-life Clarice Starling and a female Donnie Brasco. She has tailed terrorists, gone under cover as a gangster’s moll, and was one of three agents chosen to carry out the manhunt for the UNABOMER in Montana. Today Candice is an internationally recognized FBI profiler and homicide expert, as well as the author of the bestselling memoir SPECIAL AGENT: My Life on the Front Lines as a Woman in the FBI (Hyperion, 2001). Her memoir, which chronicles her career working on several high profile cases such as the Tylenol Murders and her role in catching the Unabomer, was the subject of both a TV movie and a weekly TV show on safety for women and children.
In her riveting one hour talk, Candice takes the audience on the unusual career path that led her from psychiatric nursing into the FBI, the most powerful law enforcement agency on the world. Within a few years, Candice was ushed into the inner sanctum of the world famous Behavioral Science Unit, where she was trained to be an FBI profiler. For the next twenty years Candice lived the dreams she had as a rookie agent; chasing a high profile mass murderer, catching a serial killer, and rescuing a kidnap victim alive. Candice gives the audience a thrilling glimpse into the fascinating inside story of the hunt for the infamous TYLENOL KILLER , as well as the afternoon she spent with the UNABOMER in a mountain cabin, and her intensely personal and rewarding account of rescuing a child and returning him to his family---alive!
The banquet will take place at 6:00 P.M. on October 23, 2014
at the Doubletree by Hilton Airport Hotel.
