FBI spokesman Stephen Emmett told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Tuesday that Nena Harris was a special agent assigned to the bureau’s Atlanta field office. Emmett also released a statement from Special Agent in Charge J. Britt Johnson.
“It is always devastating to lose a colleague,” Johnson said, “and our thoughts and prayers are with her family.”
Citing respect for Harris’ family, Emmett said the FBI would offer no further comment.
