Intravaia was very proud and humbled to be part of the Casey Kasem investigation. Intravaia conducted expert risk assessment and management, coupled with physical protection of Kerri Kasem, her siblings and father Casey Kasem. Intravaia was an intricate part during the initial stages of investigating Kasem's arrival in WA State, facilitating visits with him, and ultimately his removal and transportation to St. Anthony Hospital ICU. This was a constantly evolving case with known threats. Intravaia worked closely with the law firms representing Casey Kasem and Kerri Kasem in WA and CA. We assisted in the court proceedings providing depositions and acted as a liaison with the sheriff's office. Casey Kasem passed away on Father's Day June 15th 2014 with his children, loved ones and relatives beside him. We are proud to have been a part of making that possible.
Stolen Seattle Mariners memorabilia recovered.
A Seattle resident's home was burglarized and approximately $42,000 in vintage Seattle Mariners baseball cards and other memorabilia were stolen. The items had been passed down through three generations. A burglary report was filed with the City of Seattle Police Department; however, investigating this case quickly was imperative due to the ease in moving such items. Also, the probability of recovering such items was very low. We interviewed the client and identified a short list of suspects, one being the client's ex-girlfriend whom was a recovering heroin addict.
Unfortunately, the girlfriend was not answering her cell phone and had no current address; however, a relative did indicate she had received a telephone call from the ex from a suspicious telephone number. A follow-up of the number led us to a Seattle hotel. Surveillance was initiated and after thirty minutes, guess who exited a hotel room. After a few minutes of questioning, she admitted to knowing about the burglary and knew who possessed the property. Ultimately, she was uncooperative and provided false and misleading information. She also asked for money to assist. Denied. We located information on her methamphetamine/percocet/heroin dealers. We telephoned several of them and each were overly cooperative and deceitful. After many games played by the typical Seattle drug dealers, we offered the primary suspect involved an offer he could not refuse. He relinquished the items in lieu of prosecution by our client. All the items were recovered except a $100 baseball card. Only an investigation company consisting of previous law enforcement, specifically those with backgrounds in narcotics enforcement could have properly worked this case.

Sexual Harassment and Cyberstalking
Intravaia was retained by a large public agency to investigate an anonymous harassment & stalking case involving sexually related emails, spam, and materials, which were mailed through the U.S.P.S. Ultimately, a retired employee was identified. King County District Court was provided with Intravaia's Executive Summary and Investigative Report. A temporary order was approved. Intravaia later testified in King County District Court and a two-year anti-harassment order was issued by the judge against the retired employee.
