Default The biggest dark web takedown yet sends black markets reeling

NOT SINCE THE days of the now-legendary Silk Road has a single site dominated the dark web's black market as completely, and for as long, as the online bazaar known as AlphaBay. And with the news that the site has been torn down by a law enforcement raid—and one of its leaders found dead in a Thai prison—the dark web drug trade has fallen into a temporary state of chaos.

About a week ago AlphaBay, the dark web's largest contraband marketplace, went mysteriously offline. Rumors swirled that it had run off with its customers' money, or was down for maintenance. Then on Thursday, the Wall Street Journal reported that a law enforcement operation spanning threes countries shuttered the site, with Canadian police seizing its servers in Quebec, and US officials seeking the extradition of one of its alleged administrators, Alexandre Cazes, to the United States. Cazes was later found hanging in a Bangkok jail cell in an apparent suicide.
