Agent Randel was shot and killed during an undercover drug buy. He was attempting to purchase amphetamine pills when other officers lost contact with him. The other officers stopped the two suspects and then found Agent Randel shot to death in the front seat of his unmarked vehicle. One of the suspects was executed in 1985 and the second suspect had his sentence commuted to life.
Agent Randel was survived by his wife and three children.
