FBI Agent Candice DeLong to Speak at Meredith

FBI Agent Candice DeLong will visit Meredith College and speak about her experiences as an FBI special agent on Wednesday, Oct. 14, 2015, at 7 p.m. in Jones Auditorium.

Additional opportunity for students: At 3:20 p.m., DeLong will lead a workshop on What Would You Do in Dangerous Situations? This workshop, which is open to any Meredith student, will be held in Jones Auditorium.

DeLong is the best-selling author of Special Agent: My Life on the Front Lines as a Woman in the FBI. She was a key player in some of the FBI’s most gripping and memorable cases, including the Tylenol murders, and was one of three agents to carry out the manhunt for the Unabomber Ted Kaczynski in Montana. She tailed terrorists, went undercover as a gangster’s moll, and posed as the madam for a call-girl ring.

Until her retirement in 2000, DeLong was the head profiler in the San Francisco Division of the FBI. She served as liaison to the Bureau’s world famous Behavioral Science Unit at Quantico, and was a member of the California Child Abduction Task Force. DeLong’s memoir was also the source of a Lifetime Original Movie, Killer Instinct: From the Files of Candice DeLong.  She can be seen on the Investigation Discovery network's hit shows Deadly Women, where she provides analysis of women who kill, and Facing Evil with Candice DeLong, where she goes behind prison walls to interview convicted killers. She frequently appears on television, commenting on violent crime stories in the headlines, as well as tips on personal safety. Her appearances include Meet the Press, 48 Hours, Dateline, Hardball with Chris Matthews, MSNBC Investigates, NBC, ABC and CBS Evening News, Today Show, Good Morning America, CNN, MSNBC, FOX News and Oprah. 

DeLong’s visit is sponsored by the Meredith College Convocation Committee. The lecture is free and open to the public. For Meredith students, this convocation qualifies as an academic/cultural event in General Education.
