Remembering FBI agents killed in chopper crash

MILWAUKEE  (WSAU- Wheeler News)   A private F-B-I ceremony was held yesterday to honor two agents who died in a helicopter training flight – one of whom started his career in Wisconsin.

41-year-old Christopher Lorek had his first F-B-I field assignment in Milwaukee in 1998. He and 40-year-old Stephen Shaw fell to their deaths last Friday, when their chopper ran into trouble during a maritime counter-terrorism exercise off the coast at Virginia Beach. They were about to go down a rope onto a ship when they fell and died.

Lorek and Shaw were both members of the F-B-I’s elite hostage rescue team – which recently saved a boy from a kidnapper in an underground bunker in Alabama. F-B-I Director Robert Mueller praised the two agents at yesterday’s ceremony. He said both displayed “true and unerring valor.” The service took place at the Marine Corps’ Memorial Chapel in Quantico Virginia.
