FBI Announces the Line-of-Duty Death of Former Special Agent Brian L. Crews
Washington, D.C.

It is with great sadness that the FBI announces the line-of-duty death of Supervisory Special Agent (Retired) Brian L. Crews. Crews passed away on June 10, 2018, as a direct result of his work in response to the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001.

Crews served in the FBI for 27 years. He joined the Bureau in 1988 as a file clerk, then became a special agent in 1994. He was a special agent in the Sacramento Division, and it was his work with the Sacramento Evidence Response Team that led him to serve a tour at the World Trade Center Fresh Kills site in 2001, where he was exposed to many contaminants while processing evidence. Crews transferred to the Washington Field Office in 2003 and served there and at Headquarters’ Criminal Investigative Division as a supervisor and instructor until his retirement in 2015.

His death is a great loss to the extended FBI family and community.
