Scott Sieben, a DEA agent assigned to the Evansville, Ind., post, died this week from injuries sustained in a motorcycle crash a month earlier, the Evansville Courier & Press reports.
Scott Sieben, 54, died Tuesday in an Indianapolis hospital where he had been since the May 3 crash.
Sieben previously worked overseas for the DEA but came to Evansville to be closer to his family.
“He was just really cool — an intellectual but a super nice guy,” said Karen Vaughn-Kajmowicz, an Evansville Police Department sergeant who is a member of the city-county drug task force that works with the FBI. “He just fit in well with this unit.”
Vaughn-Kajmowicz said Sieben was driven and dedicated to his family and job.
“Scott was the perfect balance of family, faith and work. All of us can learn from that — that you can be good at all of those things, Vaughn-Kajmowicz said. “You don’t have to put all of your eggs in one basket. You can be a good father, husband and a servant of God, along with being really good at what you do.”
