Position: NCIS Special Junior Agent to the Major Case Response Team
Cause of Death: Gunshot wounds
Caitlin “Kate” Todd left her job with the Secret Service in order to serve as Anthony DiNozzo’s partner on the NCIS Major Case Response Team. When she and DiNozzo weren’t playfully bickering with each other, Todd was committed to solving crimes in the field.
Her great negotiation skills, paired with her compassion for others, made her a wonderful addition to the family. Todd died protecting Gibbs from a shooter, taking both a bullet to the chest and a fatal shot to the head.
It was her selfless nature that saved Gibbs’s life and earned her a posthumous Presidential Medal of Freedom award.
