MEMPHIS – Memorial events to honor the life and sacrifice of Tennessee Bureau of Investigation Special Agent De’Greaun Frazier have been finalized for next week. Special Agent Frazier, 35, was one of several Agents working alongside the Metropolitan Narcotics Task Force during an operation last Tuesday afternoon when shot by a subject, who was subsequently captured and charged.
Frazier joined TBI in early 2016, following a career as a police officer with the Millington Police Department. In that capacity, he also served on a DEA Task Force. He is survived by a wife and two children.
“Agent Frazier was exactly what we look for in a TBI Agent: hard-working, enthusiastic, and dedicated to making Tennessee a better place to live. We are deeply saddened by his death and will work aggressively to investigate this case to its fullest. His commitment to our agency and public service will not be forgotten.”

Vanderbilt University announced Monday that it will pay more than a million dollars to remove an inscription containing the word "Confederate" from one of its campus dorms.
The private university has referred to the Confederate Memorial Hall simply as "Memorial Hall" since 2002, but was blocked in court from changing the name chiseled on the building because it was constructed with the help of a $50,000 gift from the United Daughters of the Confederacy in 1933.
Under the agreement, Vanderbilt will pay $1.2 million, the equivalent of the gift made 83 years ago, to the organization's Tennessee chapter. In exchange, the chapter will relinquish its naming rights to the building.
