    Russian Spy Ring Confessions

    Two more suspected spies have admitted Russian citizenship. Michael Zottoli and Patricia Mills waived their Miranda rights and told the FBI that they are Mikhail Kutzik and Natalia Pereverzeva. A third defendant, Mikhail Semenko will appear with them for bail hearings today. Prosecutors are asking the judge to deny bail, because, as the U.S. attorney in Manhattan wrote, “They are skilled deceivers who have repeatedly betrayed those closest to them and would readily do so again, by fleeing.” The details of their work here have not been made public yet, but a couple movie-worthy bits have been found by investigators—safe-deposit boxes rented by the couple were found to have eight unmarked envelopes in them—each with $10,000 in crisp Benjamins—and several notebooks were found with secret codes.
