CORDOVA, Tenn. (WKRN) – The first agent with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation killed in the line of duty was honored and laid to rest on Wednesday outside of Memphis.
Special Agent De’Greaun Frazier was shot and killed last week while conducting an undercover drug operation.
“Frazier ran his mission and he completed his mission and brother we got it from here,” said Qadeer Smith.
Family, friends and those in blue are healing after one of their own with a badge was killed in Jackson last week.
“You are now part of the family of blue and it’s a loving family.”
Agent Frazier, or “Dee,” spent six months with the TBI, but his impact on law enforcement stretches across the state.
Director Mark Gwyn says he was one of the best.
“Now, he is patrolling those streets that are made of gold. He’s got no more worries, no more troubles.”
Frazier had a lengthy law enforcement career with the Rutherford County and Shelby County Sheriff’s Offices and several city and university departments
“He showed himself as everything that we look for in an agent; diligent, detailed, brave, enthusiastic and eager to learn,” Gwyn told hundreds of people on Wednesday.
Frazier was a father of two who loved his community which made him a strong agent.
“He was always dependable, level headed and fun to be around,” Jonathan Wingo said while remembering Frazier.
As the rain fell along with tears, friends say a hero lies beneath the flag – a hero who gave it all.
“You are the best that ever did it and for some reason that we do not know. God stepped in and said Frazier, job well done.”
Now, he can be an inspiration for others.
“He’s in heaven on the next Jesus task force,” said Jermaine Williams.
