NORFOLK, Va. (AP) - The Virginia medical examiner's office says two FBI agents killed in a fall while training off the Virginia Beach coast died from blunt force trauma.
The Virginian-Pilot reports that the medical examiner's office released its findings Wednesday.
The FBI has said Special Agents Christopher W. Lorek and Stephen P. Shaw fell to their deaths on May 17 when a helicopter ran into trouble during a "maritime counterterrorism exercise."
Both were members of the bureau's elite hostage rescue team. The team is trained in military tactics and outfitted with combat-style gear and weapons.
