Retired agent Jerome Lorrain and former Safe Street Taskforce (SSTF) officer Joseph W. Nicholson review one of their kidnapping and murder investigations. In 2001, David Cannon abducted and bludgeoned to death Thomas Earl Beasley, III. Cannon and Beasley met at the Miss-A-Bama Saloon. Cannon became enraged after Beasley allegedly made a sexual pass at him. Beasley's body was later found floating in a pond in rural Alabama. The SSTF worked the case and made a crucial consensually recorded conversation between a confidential informant and Cannon. The Jackson Division Evidence Response Team (ERT) and the FBI Lab conducted forensic examinations that were also significant to the successful prosecution and resolution of this case. Jerome Lorraine served in the FBI for 30 years. Joseph Nicholson has worked in law enforcement for the past 28 years.
