Officer Desmond Casey was killed when the helicopter he was piloting crashed. Officer Casey and a mechanic were flying the helicopter after it had been worked on. During the flight, the rear of the helicopter experienced mechanical failure, causing it to spin out of control. Officer Casey was able to crash-land the helicopter in an empty spot on a congested roadway, avoiding a worse disaster. Both he and the mechanic were killed in the crash. Officer Casey had been with the agency for ten years.
