Most confidential informants are criminals saving themselves from something. However, Morgan was no criminal. Instead, he was a rising filmmaker out of Florida who, as a loving father, objected to the sale of drugs on his daughter's school yard. When the local police brushed off his complaint, he took on that street dealer and launched a personal vendetta.
Confidential Informants are criminals who are saving themselves from something. However, Robert W. Morgan
was no criminal. He was a loving father who objected to the sale of drugs on his daughter's schoolyard and wanted to make a difference. In time, he would assist in exposing the brains of the Mafia's most brilliant international cartel. The major players included the infamous mobsters Joseph Bonanno, Meyer Lansky, and John Charles Piazza III, all with solid links to the Five Families.
Under the combined aegis of the DEA and the FBI, Morgan unraveled the most sophisticated money-laundering scheme in the history of international crime and cost the Mafia a documented half-billion dollars.
In the end, he would also hear a London confession on who killed Pope John Paul I and why. Pope John Paul I died after just one month as pope. He knew too much.
Morgan waited this long to reveal all in an attempt to avoid sure hits on his now grown daughter's life.
Robert W. Morgan
was a rising Florida filmmaker when he decided to try to make a difference and become an informant. Morgan's activities earned him a pass among the Mafia, not suspecting he was leading a triple life: working for the DEA and FBI, too.
He now lives and writes in Montana.
