Hero Down: U.S. Marshals Service Senior Inspector Jared Keyworth Killed Crash

Jackson, MS – U.S. Department of Justice United States Marshals Service (USMS) Senior Inspector Jared Keyworth died in the line of duty on Oct. 1 due to injuries he suffered in a crash several days earlier.

The collision occurred as the 42-year-old inspector was working on a violent felony offender case near Florence, The Advocate reported.

He was travelling near the intersection of Monmouth Road and U.S. Route 49 when his vehicle collided with another car, according to the Officer Down Memorial Page.

Inspector Keyworth was airlifted to the University of Mississippi Medical Center, where he remained until he succumbed to his injuries on Oct. 1.

“The U.S. Marshals Service is deeply saddened by the loss of SI Keyworth,” USMS Director Ronald Davis told The Advocate. “We are a close-knit family and Jared’s loss will be felt throughout the entire organization.”

“This tragedy is a reminder of the inherent risks our men and women face on a daily basis,” Director Davis added.

Prior to joining the USMS 11 years ago, Inspector Keyworth served as part of The Old Guard in the U.S. Army and escorted the riderless horse during the funeral of President Ronald Reagan, The Advocate reported.

He was assigned to the USMS Investigative Operations Division Baton Rouge station at the time of his death.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of U.S. Department of Justice United States Marshals Service Senior Inspector Jared Keyworth, both blood and blue. Thank you for your service.

Rest easy, hero. We’ll hold the line from here.
