An investigation into the murder of a 14-year-old girl in suburban Detroit has prompted FBI agents and police to stop cars that leave or enter the village of Armada, the Free Press reports.

The body of April Millsap was discovered near a trail as her dog stayed with her. Two joggers discovered her body.

Police have declined to say how she died but the medical examiner has ruled the death a homicide.

FBI agents and police raided a home about 15 miles northeast of Armada and arrested two people on marijuana charges.

It’s unclear how investigators believe they may have been involved.

On Thursday, agents and police were questioning drivers and checking their IDs.

The FBI is on the hunt for a few hundred special agents.

Buffalo Business First reports that the FBI is searching for people who speak foreign languages, people with accounting, computer science or IT skills or people with law degrees.

“From Aug. 1 to Aug. 15, posting for special agent positions will be open,” said Buffalo field office special-agent-in-charge Brian Boetig. “These are gun-toting, badge-carrying investigators, and we’ll get hundreds of thousands of applicants, who will be assigned to one of the agency’s 56 U.S. field offices, or one of 60 overseas offices.”

Boetig said a lot of help is needed.

“We’re always looking for accountants and those with law backgrounds because of the amount of health-care fraud,” he said. “People with computer and technology backgrounds are helpful because of cyber threats we face.”

Applicants must be between the ages of 23 and 37.

A Mexican man wanted in connection with the fatal shooting of a Border Patrol agent has been extradited to the U.S., Reuters reports.

Ivan Soto-Barraza is accused of killing Agent Brian Terry in 2010 during a gun battle near the Mexican border in Arizona.

Soto-Barraza and five others have been charged in the death. Two remain on the loose.

“This marks another step forward in our aggressive pursuit of those responsible for the murder of Agent Brian Terry, who made the ultimate sacrifice while serving his country,” said Attorney General Eric Holder in a statement.

The death of Terry drew outrage after it was discovered that one of the guns recovered at the scene was traced back to a botched trafficking probe by the ATF.

Not long from now, hundreds of Texas National Guard troops will descend on border towns in an unusual show of force.

The USA Today reports that some cities are welcoming the troops, who will arrive sporting camouflage and guns.

“If anything, [the guardsmen] will send a strong message that our border will be secure,” Rio Grande City Mayor Ruben Villarreal said. “We’ll have the manpower necessary to finally secure this area.”

Critics, including the federal government and state lawmakers, have said the troops’ presence could worsen the problem and even cause unnecessary deaths.

Gov. Rick Perry announced last week that he plans to bring in up to 1,000 troops.

DEA Leadership Blasted In Report On Student Left In Cell For Days

Michele Leonhart

By Ryan Reilly
Huffington Post

WASHINGTON – The leadership of the Drug Enforcement Administration comes under fire in a report issued by the Justice Department Office of the Inspector General on the near-death of a college student left in a holding cell for five days. The review finds that DEA leadership “violated Department of Justice and DEA policy” and delayed a proper investigation into the incident by not reporting it to the inspector general’s office immediately.

While a summary of the IG report on Daniel Chong’s hellish ordeal while in the custody of the DEA had previously been released, a redacted version of the full report was just released to The Huffington Post in response to a Freedom of Information Act request.

The report indicates that DEA Deputy Administrator Thomas Harrigan planned to discuss the situation with Administrator Michele Leonhart in the days after the incident. DEA leadership subsequently made a decision to have a review conducted by a district attorney instead of immediately reporting the incident to the Justice Department inspector general’s office as it should have.

“DEA management’s decision to conduct a management review instead of ensuring that the matter was promptly referred to the OIG was troubling,” the report stated

An off-duty FBI agent got into a shootout Wednesday with a man accused of an attempted kidnapping at a gym in southern California, leading to a wild pursuit by police, NBC Los Angles reports.

The FBI agent, who was wearing gym clothes, intervened in an attempted abduction at an LA Fitness parking lot in the San Fernando Valley when the shootout occurred.

“We had an FBI agent who was here on personal business. He witnessed what he believed to be a suspect attempting to kidnap a female victim, and a shooting occurred,” said Robert Clark, Los Angeles FBI assistant special agent in charge.

The suspect, who authorities believe was struck in the shootout, fled in a car, leading police on a 15-minute pursuit, sometimes driving in the opposite direction on Coast Highway with a windshield riddled with bullets.

The man bailed from the car and curled up on his side while SWAT members surrounded him.

He was taken into custody.
