Top FBI agent in Utah taking new post in Alabama

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - The director of the FBI's operations in Utah, Montana and Idaho is returning to Alabama to oversee an office where he spent a decade.

FBI Special Agent in Charge Tim Fuhrman in November will take over the FBI's Mobile, Ala.-based division, which covers 36 counties in the area. He worked in that office from 1994 to 2004.

Fuhrman began in Salt Lake City in April 2005.

On Monday, he discussed several of the most significant cases on his watch, including the case of Joseph Edward Duncan III, convicted of murdering a couple and two children in Idaho and Montana in 2005; the pursuit of polygamous church leader Warren Jeffs; and a sweeping investigation into artifact looting in the Four Corners area.
