For the first time, the F.B.I. informant who claims he received a hit list with the names of 60 people from the Shawano area is speaking out.
NewsChannel 7's Secrets in Shawano series took us all the way to New York City. There, we spoke to that F.B.I. informant at the CBS broadcast center. NewsChannel 7 worked with Armen Keteyian, the Chief Investigative Correspondent for the CBS Evening News with Katie Couric.
We'll hear the informant's claims about the origins of the list. We'll also hear from the S.I.S.T. Attorney, Alan Eisenberg, who says the claims are 'pure fantasy'. S.I.S.T. has claimed the informant stole money from them under the direction of corrupt Shawano Officials.
We'll bring you both sides of the story tonight on NewsChannel 7 at 5. Immediately after, you can see Armen Keteyian's story on the CBS Evening News with Katie Couric at 5:30. Then, tune into NewsChannel 7 at 6:00 for a behind-the-scenes look at what it was like working with a network crew on this national story.
