years old, divorced.

Ex-wife is a nurse.

Did two years at Newark PD.

Why did he leave Newark PD?

Maybe too well.

He killed those inmates after he heard the FBI was coming.

Were these Lontocs the ones calling your friend?

I don't know.

They searched the whole prison, didn't find any phones.

And the one used to contact Matthew isn't pinging anymore.

De Rossi could've took 'em.

Well, I got some metadata, though.

Matthew was texting back and forth with that burner for at least a few days.

Brendan and I had only been married a year when he got fired.

What happened?

Well, officially, it was insubordination, which is basically a nice way of saying that he punched a desk sergeant in the mouth.

He always had a temper.

He did private security after that?

Off and on for a while, yeah.

But, mainly, he'd just go to the bar every night and come home drunk and complaining.

Is that why you divorced him?

I actually wasn't the one who filed.

He left you?

Yeah, after he started working at the prison.

All of a sudden, he's working out, he's buying new clothes, he's wearing this ridiculous cologne, constantly lying to me about where he'd go every night.

And then one day, he just came home and...

said he was leaving.

- Did he tell you why?

- I mean, I knew why.

He met someone.

He didn't have the guts to tell me who she was, and I didn't ask.

I was so angry and humiliated.

After all the crap he put me through, he was gonna better-deal me?

- I'm sorry.

- Don't be.

I mean, obviously, it's good riddance, right?

Look, I don't know where he is.

And I'm sorry for all those people that he killed.

But honestly...

I hate the man.

And that woman, whoever she is, that he left me for, she deserves everything that she's getting.

Let her live with the shame...

All right.

Thank you for your time.

- Thank you.

- Yeah.

The Lontocs have been here since the ' s.

They started with extorting Asian businesses, prostitution, even loan-sharking down in Atlantic City.

Now it's mostly drugs.

Just last year we busted up one of their fentanyl rings.

My buddies in the LAPD said you burned a couple of their informants they were trying to work with West Coast connections.

They're still trying to rebuild those relationships.

Murdered by a prison guard in Wantage this morning.

We think they might be using cell phones on the inside.

Well, it fits the Lontoc pattern.

Three of our perps on the fentanyl case had burners in lockup at Fairview, arranging deals on the street.

You're chasing the guard now?

Yeah.

Brendan De Rossi.

He also killed an employee.

We don't think they're connected, but somehow he got sideways with the Lontocs.
