Ted Andre & Fred Burton return to The Protectors Podcast™ to discuss the hunt for Colonel Joseph Alon's assassins. In Part IV we dive into the case developments in the 1990s and follow Ted & Fred's paths. @tandrepics @officialfredburton
Make sure to check out Fred's book Chasing Shadows: A Special Agent's Lifelong Hunt to Bring a Cold War Assassin to Justice. On a warm Saturday night in July 1973 in Bethesda Maryland, a gunman stepped out from behind a tree and fired five point-blank shots into Joe Alon, an unassuming Israeli Air Force pilot and family man. Alon's sixteen-year-old neighbor, Fred Burton, was deeply shocked by this crime that rocked his sleepy suburban neighborhood. As it turned out, Alon wasn't just a pilot he was a high-ranking military official and with intelligence ties. The assassin was never found and the case was closed. In 2007, Fred Burton who had since become a State Department counterterrorism special agent reopened the case.
