Agent Leon Henderson was killed in an accident while en route to a reported drowning. Agent Henderson's patrol unit, a truck, was struck by a large piece of farm equipment that entered the roadway and forced the truck into a ditch. The farm vehicle came to a rest on top of Agent Henderson's vehicle, pinning him.
Agent Henderson was transported to a local hospital where he died two weeks later.
He had served with the agency for 15 years and is survived by his wife and daughter.
