Hubert J. Treacy, Jr.

Agent Treacy was shot and killed by two Army deserters in Abingdon, Virginia. He and another agent had attempted to arrest the two in a restaurant when the men suddenly pulled out handguns and opened fire. Agent Treacy was killed instantly and the second agent was seriously wounded. The two deserters, from Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia, were arrested a few hours later.

The deserters, both 21, were convicted of first degree murder and sentenced to life in Alcatraz Prison.

Agent Treacy had been with the agency for eleven months.

Treacy is an Irish Name O'Treasaigh in Gaelic with kinsfolk coming from Co. Galway. Tipperary and Fermanagh. As the only Treacy on the list of the fallen I want to remember Hubert J Treacy Jr. May he rest in peace.
