Retired agent Richard “Dick” Marquise served with the FBI for 31 years. He is an expert in the fields of counter terrorism and crisis management, both as an investigator and as a manager. In this episode of FBI Retired Case File Review, Marquise is interviewed about Pan Am Flight 103, blown out of the skies over Lockerbie, Scotland on December 21, 1988, four days before Christmas. Two hundred and seventy people were killed. Marquise was involved with the investigation from its inception and, after being named to lead the U.S. Task Force which included the FBI, Department of Justice and the Central Intelligence Agency, he managed the investigation through the return of indictments in 1991. He also played an active role through the court proceedings and in August 2001, with the successful resolution of the trial, he received the Attorney General’s Award for Distinguished Service. Following the case, which had been code-named Scotbom, his Bureau career included the role of Special Agent in Charge (SAC) of the FBI’s Oklahoma City Division. He has provided training to law enforcement officials all over the United States and internationally and has appeared on television and radio talk shows and has given hundreds of speeches all over the world on the topic of terrorism. In order to document the facts of the investigation, Marquise wrote Scotbom: Evidence and the Lockerbie Investigation a non-fiction account of the international terrorism case.

Frontline 3 Part Series: My Brother’s Bomber (VIDEO)
Ken Dornstein, who lost his brother David on Flight 103, produced a 3 part documentary on his quest to uncover more information on those responsible for the Lockerbie bombing.
“My Brother’s Bomber” aired on PBS in 2015, and Ken’s work helped to uncover 2 additional suspects in Libya—including the bomb maker Richard mentions in the podcast (I believe Richard is one of several investigators interviewed in the documentary).

Thank you Fred for letting me know about the Frontline series. I watched some of it and will finish it later, but have added the link to the episode show notes. I think it’s important to include the voices of the victims’ families.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lM46LwmEY20 iThink the documentary PROVING Megrahi was most likely a scapegoat for the Lockerbie bombing was leaked by the Russian:):) i made clips and you’ll see that Buck Revell is “not” 100% ,…….
I have no information regarding this bombing theory, but respect your opinion.

I’m proud that we were able to record the episode in time for listeners to remember the victims during this year’s anniversary, Wednesday, December 21.
