Brent's body was discovered with a New York Times identification card that was used to identify him. New York Times immediately posted a tweet saying, "We are deeply saddened to hear of Brent Renaud's death. Brent was a talented filmmaker who had contributed to The New York Times over the years. Though he had contributed to The Times in the past (most recently in 2015), he was not on assignment for any desk at The Times in Ukraine. Early reports that he worked for Times circulated because he was wearing a Times press badge that had been issued for an assignment many years ago."

Another user wrote, “What a cold statement to a professional who has worked with you, it is very easy to write from a newsroom safe from bombs and war, you should have more RESPECT.”

One more user stated, “You use more words explaining he's not working for you than on your condolences.”
