Special Agent Percy Foxworth and Special Harold Haberfield were killed in a military airplane accident near Paramaribo, Surinam, while en route to north Africa.

The agents were performing a secret mission at the request of General Dwight Eisenhower in support of war efforts during WWII to retrieve Charles Bedaux, a French-born, naturalized American who was under investigation for cooperating with the German and Vichy governments.

Launched on February 8, 1944, liberty ship S.S. Percy E. Foxworth was named in Special Agent Foxworth's memory.
