The Unsolved U.S. Attorney's Murder

Jeff Toobin has a new article in the New Yorker on the unsolved murder of Washington (Seattle) Assistant U.S. Attorney Tom Wales.

After detailing the life and murder of Wales, a well-liked AUSA who was politically active in a gun safety group, Toobin connects some dots between the Justice Department's initial lack of enthusiasm for investigating the murder and the later firing of Washington U.S. Attorney John McKay, who had nudged (pressured is too strong a word) those at Main Justice to try harder to find the murderer.

There's also a suspect in the murder, and Jeff details his history as well.

It's a great read, and available free online.
