McLean, Va. (November 10, 2015) – Three DynCorp International (DI) team members were killed in Monday’s shooting at the Jordan International Police Training Center (JIPTC) in Amman, Jordan. Two of the deceased are:

  • Lloyd “Carl” Fields, Jr., 46, of Cape Coral, Florida, began working for DynCorp International in 2006 as a police advisor in Iraq. He later worked in Afghanistan as a police advisor and embedded police mentor before working at JIPTC. Prior to his time at DI, he worked as a deputy sheriff at Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office in Louisiana. Mr. Fields is survived by his wife, Tamara, and children Trey, Bevin and Breana.
  • Conrad Vaughn Whitehorn, 37, of Johannesburg, South Africa, previously worked as a static security officer, close protection officer, and security driver for a number of companies before working for DI at JIPTC. Mr. Whitehorn is survived by his parents and his fiancée.

The name of the third DI team member is not being released by the company at this time, out of respect for the family’s privacy.
