“My heart just dropped because who would have known you have someone that dangerous with that much deception living within your community, said Kenon.

Kenon calls the fallen agents heroes.
“They’re nothing but HEROS. That’s the only way to put it. You put yourself on the line for someone else. That’s a heroic nature. What they displayed and what the FBI agents are going is heroic,” Kenon said.
