Special Agent Oliviah saves the day

Posted Mar 30, 2018

9-year-old Oliviah received her wish to be an FBI Agent for the Day

FirstEnergy Stadium was under investigation when Special Agent Oliviah stopped in to solve a mystery with Cleveland FBI agents.

9-year-old Oliviah Hall of Ashtabula, Ohio had her wish of being an FBI agent granted by A Special Wish Foundation on Tuesday, March 28. Oliviah is currently battling a rare form of brain cancer and is in her third round of treatment. Although she is fighting Glioblastoma Multiform Grade IV, she remains energetic and spirited.

A Special Wish Foundation teamed up with the FBI of Cleveland, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Cleveland Browns to create a one of a kind case for her to solve. The Foundation’s mission is to grant wishes of children who have been diagnosed with a life-threatening disorder.

Oliviah began her day at the Cleveland FBI headquarters where she was sworn in and given her official credentials. The FBI taught her defensive tactics, how to apply handcuffs, and special interview techniques. During her lunch with the team, a call came in for a time sensitive case. The FBI needed to send their best and Agent Oliviah was just that!

Agent Oliviah hurried over to FirstEnergy Stadium to interrogate witnesses and investigate the evidence left behind. Upon her arrival, she interviewed Head of Security for the Cleveland Browns, John Frain and Cleveland Browns Mascot, Chomps. Chomps had seen someone dressed in all black running from FirstEnergy Stadium with a large item. Agent Oliviah asked Chomps what the suspect looked like, what they were wearing, and where they were running from. 

Her interrogation led her to the Browns Home Team Locker Room where she inspected Chomps’ locker. As Agent Oliviah put on her official gloves to collect evidence, she looked through every inch of his locker that was filled with his uniform, helmet, and other apparel. Agent Oliviah taped off the crime scene, took photos and gathered surveillance footage before finding a suspicious cat bowl left in the locker. Before she moved on to follow the suspect’s trail, she walked away with some Cleveland Browns gear and memorabilia to thank her for her hard work.

After finding more clues, uncovering fingerprints and consulting witnesses, Agent Oliviah solved her case at the Rock Hall where she found the suspect, Cat Woman! Cat Woman was handcuffed by Agent Oliviah and taken back to headquarters to be processed. The FBI held a special press conference for Agent Oliviah to debrief her findings. She was awarded an official FBI certificate for her hard work and success.

Thank you Agent Oliviah for saving the day and solving the crime!
