John Walker's Former Spy House

John Walker's Former Spy House


Norfolk, Virginia (VA), US
This ordinary looking house in Virginia was once the home of John Walker, a U.S. Naval officer who ran the most extensive, damaging espionage ring in Cold War history. Walker began spying for the Soviet Union in 1967, bringing them a code books as well as classified information from the ships on which he was stationed. Later, Walker successfully recruited his son Michael, as well as other into his treacherous spy ring. Until he and his fellow spies were caught in 1985, Walker and his operatives leaked hundreds of secrets and documents to the Russians, receiving perhaps as much as a million dollars in compensation and risking countless U.S. lives for their own greed.

Walker lived in this house and ran his spy operation from this suburban home.
Walker is currently in prison suffering from diabetes and stage IV throat cancer. He is scheduled for release on May 20, 2015 after serving only 30 years in prison.
