Police: Md. FBI agent fatally stabbed wife before killing self

WASHINGTON — Anne Arundel County police say it appears a local FBI agent fatally stabbed his estranged wife before shooting himself outside a Crownsville house Wednesday morning.

Around 8 a.m., police responded to the 500 block of Arundel Boulevard in Crownsville, Maryland, after a 911 caller said a woman asked her to call dispatchers “because she was being threatened by her recently estranged husband,” Anne Arundel County police said in a Wednesday afternoon news release. When police arrived, they found the bodies of a man and woman outside the residence.

Police said the woman, identified as 54-year-old Donna Fisher, had apparent stab wounds. The man, identified as 52-year-old David Raynor, had apparent stab wounds and a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Both Fisher and Raynor were pronounced dead at the scene.

Raynor had been a special agent at the FBI’s Baltimore field office. He joined the bureau in 1996; the field office confirmed he had spent about 14 years there.

Friday would have marked one year since Fisher filed for divorce from Raynor, according to online court records.

Homicide detectives are investigating, and the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner will conduct an autopsy.
