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.
