This undated image released by the FBI on Oct. 31, 2011, shows Richard Murphy (left) and Christopher Metsos in Queens, N.Y. Murphy was one of the ring of Russian sleeper spies shut down by federal counterintelligence agents in June of 2010 in a case code-named “Ghost Stories”, that led two weeks later to the biggest spy swap between the U.S. and Russia since the cold War. According to the FBI, Mestos is the 11th suspected ring member; he claimed to be a Canadian citizen, delivered money and equipment to the sleeper agents and vanished after a court in Cyprus freed him on bail.
