Mr. Ronald Vitiello, acting director of the Department of Homeland Security, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, sadly reports the death of Special Agent Dennis McCarthy.

SA McCarthy, 65, died as a result of a form of cancer that he contracted due to his exposure to airborne toxins and contaminants that he inhaled during his assignment to Ground Zero at the World Trade Disaster.

Initially, McCarthy was assigned to secure the U.S. Customs House site, which was destroyed and then assisted with the search and recovery efforts for several months.

Dennis McCarthy had served with Homeland Security Investigations and the former United States Customs Service for over 31 years.

Special Agent Dennis McCarthy is gone, but will never be forgotten.
