Billy Magalassi investigates fires and explosives at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

Probing Fires/Explosives at ATF

As an ATF Agent in Oklahoma, Alumnus Billy Magalassi assisted in the investigation a woman and two children found dead in a trailer fire. After carefully piecing the case together, the evidence showed the woman was brutally stabbed to death by a boyfriend, her eight-year-old son was fatally wounded coming to her aid, and her six-year-old daughter was locked in a closet alive before the house was set on fire.

“On a personal note, I try and be an advocate for the victims who are no longer here to tell anyone what happened,” Magalassi said. “I’ve been doing this for 26 years, and seeing the victims, particular the boy, who after seeing his mom attacked and stabbed by the boyfriend, was coming to Mom’s aid. He was just a child, and you just want to do something for them. So you put the case back together and deliver it to a jury to tell their story.”
