11 U.S army soldiers were found dead under “mysterious circumstances” in a military base in Ford Hood, Texas. Investigators who were working to establish how young and healthy men suddenly dropped dead found one common chilling thing between them all, which showing that it couldn’t be a mere coincidence.
Police have been overwhelmed with the unusual number of deaths over the last three months, all of whom are Fort Hood soldiers. They are dropping at an alarming rate. Alex Taylor of Texas City is the most recent victim who was found unresponsive on Wednesday at the base.
The Freedom daily reports:
“At this point in the investigative process we do not suspect foul play, but have not completely ruled it out while we conduct a complete and thorough death investigation,” Criminal Investigations spokesman Christopher Grey said.
This response comes after a series of mysterious deaths started piling up, the first one occurring on October 12 and haven’t stopped since. Another soldier was found unresponsive at work in that same month, and each month since, all being discovered in the same strange manner, all of which were healthy one day and dead the next. However, the next three deaths all shared something else in common that make their fatalities different than the first ones.
24-year-old Pvt. Kevin Paulino from Fort Hood died from a gunshot wound while he was off base as the first of three to have been killed in the same way, according to Stars and Stripes. Their deaths are also under investigation by the Army since answers into what happened was not immediately clear.
Pvt. Dakota Lee Stump, 19, was another of the long line of fatalities who was finally found almost a month after going missing on October 10 when he was declared as having gone AWOL. However, his body was found Nov. 3 next to his flipped vehicle by soldiers conducting land navigation training just 100 yards from the road, an Army release stated.
