Memorial for Agent Slain 15 Years Ago

A memorial ceremony was held yesterday in memory of the 15th anniversary of the death of Special Agent Charles L. “Chuck” Reed, who was shot and killed on March 22, 1996, while working undercover in a drug investigation in Philadelphia. Two of Reed’s sons are now special agents, both serving in Philadelphia.

On March 22, 1996, while working undercover, Reed met in his car in the parking lot of waterfront hotel with a reputed drug dealer. A gun battle ensued inside the car, and both the suspect and Reed were shot and killed.
