Detective Christopher McNulty

For four years, Detective Christopher McNulty has worked with the U.S. Secret Service Electronic Crimes Task Force. He has consistently performed at the highest levels of forensic analysis. Detective McNulty has conducted over 250 digital forensic examinations. These examinations, as well as his investigative skills, have led to numerous arrests at both the state and federal levels.

His exemplary work includes an investigation that has led to the arrest of more than a dozen suspects and digital examinations of approximately 50 devices. He examined two devices seized from a suspected serial rapist’s residence and identified evidence of the suspect researching and planning his crimes. He further identified photographs the suspect took of his victims during these crimes. In addition, Detective McNulty assisted victims of an email phishing scam that attempted to initiate fraudulent bank wires. He identified two suspects in that crime.

These cases and many more were successful as a result of Detective McNulty’s outstanding work.
