An Introduction to Mr. Big
From: The "Mr Big" Sting
The chapter begins with descriptions of a series of murders where a Mr. Big strategy was later used. Mr. Big is an undercover operation in which police attempt to trick a suspect to disclose a serious crime by convincing him that he is joining a criminal gang. Almost always when Mr.Big was used, the police were confronted with a brutal murder, a suspect, and a lack of proof on which to convict the suspect. The chapter continues with an analysis of murders in Canada.
