International operation takes down AlphaBay, Hansa dark web markets

Simultaneously, a U.S. operation, Bayonet, led by the FBI and the DEA pegged the identity of AlphaBay’s administrator, a 25-year-old Canadian named Alexandre Cazes, aka Alpha02 and Admin, living in Thailand, who was arrested on July 5 (and a week later apparently took his own life in a Thai prison). That site was shuttered and authorities froze and seized millions of dollars in cryptocurrencies as well as servers in Canada and the Netherlands.
