Retired FBI Agent Brian Crews Dies; Linked to Exposure to World Trade Center

By Allan Lengel

Retired FBI agent Brian L. Crews died earlier this month as a 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 and began as a file clerk. In 1994, he became a special agent.

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 contaminants while processing evidence, an FBI press release says.

He transferred to the Washington Field Office in 2003 and served there and at headquarters’ Criminal Investigative Division as a supervisor and instructor.

He retired in 2015.
