FBI Agent Kills Herself After Being Confronted in Court About Texting on Witness Stand

An FBI agent who had testified in a criminal fraud trial in federal court in Idaho killed herself after testifying on March 19, the Idaho Statesmen reports.

FBI agent Rebekah Morse killed herself.

The paper reported that she may have lied under oath when she told Chief U.S. District Judge B. Lynn Winmill last week that she turned off her phone and wasn’t texting while on the witness stand.

The paper reported:

Morse, who carried out the criminal investigation into the company, testified at the trial March 18 and 19. She killed herself sometime the evening of Wednesday, March 19, or Thursday morning.

Transcripts of text messages obtained from Morse’s phone after her death appear to indicate she had sent a message or messages during the time she was on the stand, defense attorney Jeffrey Robinson said.

“She made a deliberate decision to say she wasn’t texting when she was texting from the witness stand,” Robinson said.

A juror notified a court clerk during a break on Wednesday that he or she had seen Morse texting two or three times, according to the court records.

Morse’s phone was taken from her under an order from Winmill and placed in a secured court evidence vault. It remained in the vault after Morse died.
