BOSTON, Jan. 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Shares in Insys Therapeutics ("Insys" or the "Company") (Nasdaq:  INSY) are down over 31% since their opening price on December 3, 2015, following a series of investigative reports issued by the Southern Investigative Reporting Foundation ("SIRF"), entitled "Murder Incorporated".
