K9 Remi was killed in an automobile accident on I-96, just prior to the Evergreen Avenue exit, while she and her handler were en route to the Detroit Branch of the Federal Reserve Bank for an assignment at the vehicle inspection facility.

The handler's vehicle slid into a concrete barrier after sliding on a patch of ice. Remi's crate was ejected from the vehicle through a rear window and broke open. She was subsequently struck by a another vehicle, which then fled the scene.

K9 Remi served as an explosives detection canine and had served with the agency for only two months.

I read the story of Remi just today after researching the sign I saw on I-96. Please accept my condolences for the loss of a wonderful K9 and companion. I’m happy that the sign was erected as she certainly earned her memorial.
