Here’s a little more about Wray from a 2005 AJC profile:
And the frenetic pace never stopped. Two months later, the 19 al-Qaida terrorists crashed planes into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and a field in rural Pennsylvania, killing nearly 3,000 people.
During his time at Justice, Wray also worked closely with [then- Deputy Attorney General Larry] Thompson to bring indictments against individuals at energy giant Enron and HealthSouth Corp.
In addition to helping secure indictments against terror cells operating in America, Wray helped coordinate the investigation of the Washington area snipers.
Under his watch, the criminal division dealt blows to drug traffickers, intellectual property thieves and distributors of child pornography.
"I think a lot of people thought all the focus would be on terrorism and everything else would go into the ditch, " Wray said. "In fact, I think we've accomplished incredible things. I feel so fortunate to have had this job in this time."
Another interesting fact about Wray: The family of his wife, Helen, has lived in Atlanta for seven generations and her great-grandfather, Clark Howell, once owned The Atlanta Constitution.
