Fredericksburg Contractor Killed in Libya Hotel Attack

By Susan Larson

A contractor with Fredericksburg based security company Crucible LLC was among the ten people killed in a terrorist attack in Tripoli, Libya, on January 27.

The State Department confirmed one of the dead was an American, and Crucible CEO Cliff Taylor identified him as David Berry, a contractor with his company.

“Our company mourns this extraordinary loss with his family and friends,” Taylor told ABC 7. He declined to release any additional information, citing security concerns.

Berry’s LinkedIn profile described him as a 12-year Marine combat veteran “with extensive experience in the Special Operations and Intelligence Communities” who often worked in “hostile and austere locations throughout the world,” The Washington Post reported.
