Lieutenant Osvaldo Albarati was shot and killed in what is believed to be retaliation for his investigations into cell phone smuggling at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Guaynabo, Puerto Rico.

He had just left the MDC and was driving home when several gunmen opened fire on his vehicle on the De Diego Expressway, near Exit 13 in Bayamon. Another officer at the prison was arrested several days later on charges of smuggling contraband to several inmates serving life sentences. The inmates and the officer are suspected to be involved with Lieutenant Albarati's murder, although no charges have yet been filed.

Lieutenant Albarati had served with the Federal Bureau of Prisons for 11 years and was assigned to a special investigations unit. He had previously served with the Puerto Rico Police Department for six years. He is survived by his wife, son, and two daughters.
