Teams of students have obtained, under the Freedom of Information Act, heretofore confidential FBI investigative reports from field agents gathered at the time which are in possession of the FBI or stored at the National Archives.

Nearly 152,000 searchable pages of information from those reports are presented here.  More are added every six months.  In addition, stories written by the student teams, lists of cases, photos and links to other projects are included. Additionally, this website includes a visual interactive map where visitors and browse and locate cases geographically.
