Former P.I. hunts down history, heritage
Although proud of her heritage, Weiner, who was born in California and raised in Iowa, says she is not particularly religious.

So imagine the shock of a woman -- who found out by logging on -- the man she loved was leading a double life.

Are you a good listener?
An investigator’s ability to solve cases relies extensively on his/her ability to develop rapport, ask the right questions, identify deceptive responses and analyze elicited information relative to evidence and other factual information. What is often overlooked, however, is the investigator’s ability to listen. Just as there is a distinction between seeing and observing, there is also a clear distinction between hearing and listening. A John Reid Article

Curbside Investigator- Surveillance Tips And Techniques
A listener contacted me with a serious question about an upcoming surveillance. It was the type of question that shows are made of and after I discussed it personally with the person, I decided to make a show out of it.

So listen up and if you are the person I go off on, well you had it coming.
