What are the chances that these two people who both work in Homeland Security/Counter-Terrorism would both die in such mysterious circumstances, only a few months apart?

First, Sean Nicholas Green: He had a high level security clearance, so you know he passed a backround/criminal records check. There is no obvious motive to the crime. Friends and family say nothing unusual seemed to be going on in his life. He was following his normal daily routine. Witnesses say he was clearly targeted during the incident, so it wasn't a random crime.

I wonder if he came across some incriminating computer evidence and, if so, did he even know it?.

What a bright future wasted.

An Oxon Hill man who worked with sensitive national security information was fatally shot Wednesday evening as he sat in his car at a stop light near his home, according to police, family members and coworkers.

Sean Nicholas Green, 31, had stopped at a red light at about 5:31 p.m. when a man approached his car and fired several shots into the driver's side window of his black Cadillac Deville, police and family members said.
Cpl. Clinton Copeland, a spokesman for Prince George's County police, said detectives do not have a suspect and are still working to establish a motive for the killing. "It doesn't appear to be a carjacking, he was sitting at the light, he wasn't the only car there -- it's weird stuff, a mystery right now," Copeland said.

OXON HILL, Md. - Family members of an Oxon Hill man are as mystified by his death as the police investigating the case; the shooting was not a robbery, and the question that lingers is whether the gunman knew his victim, and if so, how.

Sean Nicholas Green, 31, was in his car apparently leaving his Oxon Hill community about 5:30 p.m. Wednesday when he stopped before turning onto St. Barnabas Road. His family thinks that he was on his way to the gym and then on to his mother's house.

He was the second of five or six cars in the right turn lane at the intersection, investigators believe. Witnesses said a gunman, dressed in a black jacket with his hood up, walked up to Green's Cadillac and fired nine shots into the driver's-side window.

The gunman did not say anything to Green or try to open the car door, witnesses said.

"The individual just walked up him -- the window being up, the door closed -- and discharged his firearm several times, striking Mr. Green," said Prince Georges County police Cpl. Steve Pacheco.

Green died at the scene from multiple gunshot wounds to the head
Green's family said he had attended the University of Maryland and Frostburg State University, earning a computer science degree.
He held a top secret security clearance in his work as a computer specialist with the National Counter-Terrorism Center, a federal agency. They say Green loved his job and was recently promoted.

And Kanika Powell, another victim with high level security ties...

Kanika Powell suspected something when the man knocked on her door claiming to be an FBI agent. He held a badge up to her peephole but walked away when Powell refused to open up without seeing a photo ID.

Five days later, there was another knock at the door of her Laurel area apartment. This time a different man, who said he was delivering a package. When Powell again refused to open the door, he also left — no package, no note where it could be claimed.

Five hours later, Powell was outside her door after returning from errands. Someone was waiting in the hallway and opened fire, riddling her with bullets. She died a day later, this past Friday, and police have no idea why she was killed.

Her slaying has all the trappings of a television drama: e-mail messages Powell, 28, left behind about the strange men coming to her door; her mysterious career at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, where she worked as a security specialist; the FBI’s insistence that none of its agents approached the woman; and investigators who say they can find no apparent motive for her killing — no spurned lover, no robbery, no signs of gang activity, nothing.

So according to what she told family and friends - there were several different men who approached her, claiming to be FBI agents. So it's not some random lone gunman who was obsessed or something.

Great find and VERY interesting. I'm going to see what other information I can find on these two cases!!

This is kind of an interesting feature. I've never seen this format before but it could be a helpful tool.

That is such a cool link. I wonder if that info is available for other counties?

Back on topic...One of the links states that the police say the cases aren't related but come on! Would they say very much anyway given the classified nature of the deceased's jobs?

I mean really, what are the odds that this is a coincidence?

Good luck searching - I can't find much of anything on these two. The Cryptogon link has some excellent speculation on Powell's job, that's it. I guess it's not surprising though - they had sensitive jobs. I'm sure they were either careful or scrubbed every now and then.

The case of Ms. Powell is especially disturbing. It smells like the government to me. The mob and gangs aren't that clumsy/dainty when it comes to this sort of thing (knocking people off). Using more than one person to try to stalk and kill her has civil service written all over it.

It's like the joke about the "Civil Service String Trio", one person to hold the cello, one person to hold the bow, one person to turn the pages of the music.

Interesting cases.

PG County is a garbage place to live, period. Their Police Department ranks right up there at Number 1 with Los Angeles, in terms of corruption and brutality. It is also now amongst the Car-jacking Capitals of America, right alongside Newark, NJ. People are randomly gunned down ALL the time, for absolutely senseless reasons. D.C. is the same. I can hardly recall the number of times I have heard about gunmen just driving/walking around shooting random people for fun, even little kids, with no apparent motive or cause.

However, if anything, I would begin to question whether or not these are Terrorist Hits. I doubt that it would be an internal issue, unless you have some dirty Spy within these particular Agencies, such as the alleged FBI Agent at the door. There are leaks within these Agencies, and at times Spies. Just look at the Robert Hanssen case if you need an example.

Agreed, I have heard nothing but bad news about the PGCPD ... I thought they were going to disband the agency and have the PGCSO absorb the department's functions and personnel?

As for the killings, it it possible that they "knew too much" about something? I see no connection though; neither of them worked in the same facility or agency, etc

my 2 cents...

not to be racist or anything , but notice that they both have high-level clearance and both are black...

seems to me as if with a new black president in place, all or most black associates will help him succeed thru this as it does help their "image" (of course)

and i highly doubt the white house would want that... let alone the white people in it, would surely do ANYTHING to keep it that way.

they all want us to conform and listen to the 'loudspeaker'
cause really they think where too dumb to become leaders ourselves

Okay, so they lived in a "dangerous" county - big deal - they did not have dangerous lifestyles. They were also not targets of assault, robbery or burglary nor were their deaths drug related.

They were good citizens, with no known issues and high level security clearances related to Homeland Security and Counter-Terrorism.

As for the black president correlation, puhleez.
Besides, Powell was murdered well before the election took place.

Great find! These are the type of "conspiracies" that I LOVE!

I know the Maryland/DC area well and YES PG county is a crappy area....however, even in crappy areas there are little pockets of good neighborhoods. My brother lives in DC in an upscale area...but just a couple of blocks away is the hood. lol

I personally dont think this had to do with living in the PG county area, but sounds like "government" hits to me.

I don't understand why she didn't call the authorities. Not calling after the first incident I can understand to an extent but after the second caller posing as a FBI agent... I would have been ringing the PD.

I don't see how they can discount these cases being related. Their positions and the short amount of time between these hits is a correlation to me.

Here's a link to another story on her.

Sounds like someone needed those job openings in order to plant their own operatives. Just a hunch. This is a conspiracy site after all.

So out of all of those broad daylight shootings the shooter just walked away?

Good question....However, often when one is in extremely sensitive positions, you are under restrictions that prevent you from calling any civilian law enforcement authorities. One is expected to call a certain security number when one has problems......That being said, not following protocol *COULD* indicate that their lives and behavior were outside expected protocol.....

Well, on the outside to everyone, no they did not.
But who knows if the job we all know they had, was really their job. They could be connected way under the surface and nobody may ever find that out.

Maybe their known jobs were covers for something else.....thinking from a conspiratorial mindset

Wow...that story had a picture. So young and beautiful, so much potential. But I have read nothing to indicate that she did *not* take all the requisite steps to notify the authorities.

Of course, that assumes that the authorities were not involved...

Truly diabolical ..I like.

But, unless we know accurate job descriptions, we may never know who would most benefit by filling the vacancies.

God, that sound heartless. Sorry, just trying to flesh this out.

It still begs the question why she didn't call the security number. That to me hints that maybe she thought she couldn't rely on "them" for help.

Of course, she could have felt that it was some random prankster and not really anything to worry about but like I said earlier, once I could overlook. Twice would raise my hackles.

That's an assumption I would never have made in my younger years but now...

I've read and heard several stories (especially on here) that make me wonder.

Starred and flagged btw.
