Senior Inspector Jared Keyworth succumbed to injuries sustained in a vehicle crash three days earlier in Mississippi while participating in an enforcement mission.
His vehicle collided with another vehicle near the intersection of U.S. Route 49 and Monmouth Road in Florence. He was flown to the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson where he remained until succumbing to his injuries.
Senior Inspector Keyworth was a U.S. Army veteran. He had served with the United States Marshals Service for 11 years and was assigned to the Investigative Operations Division in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
During his service with the U.S. Army, Senior Inspector Keyworth escorted the riderless horse during President Ronald Reagan’s funeral.
