PITTSBURGH (AP) — A Pittsburgh suburb marked the fifth anniversary of an FBI agent's slaying by unveiling a memorial monument to him near the township's hall.
The agent, 33-year-old Samuel Hicks, was fatally shot leading a drug raid at the home of Christina and Robert Korbe (KOR'-bee) in Indiana Township on Nov. 19, 2008.
Christina Korbe is serving 15 years, 10 months in federal prison for the shooting, while her husband is serving 25 years for the drug trafficking charges that brought authorities to their home that morning.
Hicks' mother, Charlotte Carrabotta, tells the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review (http://bit.ly/I4JNFi ) she still struggles for answers and peace about her son's death, but believes her son would be proud that his memory is being honored.
A township resident and volunteer firefighter began the push for the memorial two years ago.
