Louis L. Akin Twice Honored with Meritorious Awards for Excellence in Investigations


Louis L. Akin was awarded the Meritorious Service Award for Investigative Excellence 2009 for performing a pro bono investigation for the family of a murder victim. He used a confidential informant to locate witnesses who had refused to talk to the police. The witnesses led to the identification of the murderer who was brought to trial and sentenced to prison for life.

Akin was previously awarded the Meritorious Service Award for Investigative Excellence, 2007, for discovering a wiretap installed on the telephone line beneath the home of an Austin woman. The discovery led to the arrest and conviction of a 55-year old Austin contractor who stalked and harassed ex-girlfriends over the past 20-years. The contractor was convicted of wiretapping and burglary and was sentenced to five years in prison. Akin had previously received the TALI President's Award in 2006 for his work as associate editor of the Texas Investigator magazine.
