Special Agent Terrence Loftus was killed in an aircraft accident while on a drug mission. Agent Loftus was piloting a Cessna 206H and had departed Midway International Airport in Chicago, Illinois, en route to St. Louis, Missouri, on a drug mission when, shortly after takeoff, he radioed the tower and reported engine failure before disappearing from radar.

Witnesses stated that Agent Loftus attempted to land in a large field, but crashed into a residential garage narrowly missing the nearby house before becoming completely engulfed in flames. The accident occurred in Homer Glen, Illinois. Agent Loftus was the sole person aboard the aircraft.

Agent Loftus had served with the Drug Enforcement Administration for over 14½ years, becoming an experienced pilot in the DEA Airwing the last five years and was previously a pilot while serving in the US Army. He was survived by his wife, four young children, parents, brother and sister.
