WASHINGTON – A 29-year-old special agent with the D.C. Inspector General’s Office collapsed and died Wednesday in suburban Virginia while taking a FBI physical stress test to become an agent, according to sources familiar with the incident.

Lloyd Hodge, who had been an investigator with the D.C. Inspector General’s Office for about four years, and worked on an FBI public corruption task force,  was going through the steps necessary to become an FBI agent, which included the physical test on Wednesday.

The incident happened in the Tysons Corner area in Fairfax County outside of Washington, according to sources familiar with the incident. The FBI did not disclose the cause of death or other details.

In a statement issued Thursday afternoon,   FBI spokesman Michael P. Kortan said:

“The FBI is greatly saddened by the tragic death of our task force colleague and applicant who was well into the process of becoming an FBI agent. We have extended our sympathy and support to the Hodge family.”

Colleagues at the Inspector General’s Office were devastated by news of his death, said Austin Andersen, the deputy D.C. Inspector General.

“He was very popular throughout the office,  admired and respected by everyone. And of course his colleagues are devastated,” Andersen said.

“He worked on a lot of major cases and was exceptional,” he added.

Andersen said it wasn’t unusual for young investigators in his office to move on to the federal agencies like the FBI.

“We encourage that,” he said. “We’re happy if they’re able to do well. We would have been very happy for (Lloyd) if that had come to pass.”
