Special Agent Meredith Thompson died when her aircraft crashed into a dense jungle close to Puerto Pizano near Lima, Peru while on a drug assignment. Also killed were Agents Jay Seale, Juan Vars, Frank Wallace Jr. and Frank Fernandez, each of whom was from different sections of the US DEA.

Special Agent Thompson joined DEA in the Atlanta Field Division in 1985 and was assigned to the Columbia, South Carolina, Resident Office.

Special Agent Thompson graduated from the University of South Carolina in 1983 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Criminal Justice and completed one year of postgraduate work in Criminal Justice. Special Agent Thompson was characterized as a tireless worker-innovative, motivated and organized. Throughout her career, she received numerous letters of appreciation and commendation from both within and outside DEA. John Coleman, Special Agent in Charge, Office of Training, wrote of her performance as a basic agent class counselor: "She is an excellent role model and through her demonstrated expertise, tact, and devotion, instilled within each trainee a sense of purpose, direction, and pride in DEA." Special Agent Thompson was survived by her parents, Adelaide and Jack Thompson; three sisters, Kimberly, Elizabeth, and Diane; and one brother, Doug. Special Agent Thompson was posthumously awarded the DEA Administrator's Award of Honor on May 17, 1995.
