Kevin Aleenan, acting commissioner of the Department of Homeland Security, Customs and Border Protection, sadly reports the death of Customs and Border Protection Agent Christopher Bacon.

Agent Bacon, 51, was killed in a two-vehicle crash near Crookston, Minnesota. It has been reported that his 2010 Chevrolet Tahoe patrol unit struck the back of a semi-truck tractor and trailer combination. The Minnesota State Patrol and their Crash Reconstruction Team are investigating the cause of the crash.

“Our hearts go out to the family, friends and co-workers of Chris during this difficult time,” said Dave Auwen, Great Lakes-Field Intelligence Group Field Director.

Bacon was a U.S. Army veteran. He started his career with the Customs and Border Protections as a border patrol agent in 1995. Later, he served as an air enforcement agent. He was promoted to the Intelligence Section and was assigned as the operations manager of the Air and Marine National Air Security Operations Center in Grand Forks, North Dakota. He served the agency for 22 years.

Bacon is survived by his wife and four children.

Agent Christopher Bacon is gone, but will never be forgotten.
