The federal raid on Pilot Flying J’s headquarters was a stunningly public spectacle.
But the FBI’s investigation of the Knoxville-based truck-stop colossus — which became public this month — began quietly, and was made possible by a pair of shadowy figures who essentially acted as spies.
One was an informant identified as Confidential Human Source 1, who first alerted the FBI to the alleged fraud scheme and over a period of months recorded conversations with a Pilot employee known as CHS-2.
