Two Navy SEALs Under Investigation After Lubbock Native Green Beret Found Dead

Not Released

Army Staff Sergeant Logan J Melgar, from Texas, was found at United States embassy housing in Mali on 4 June.

Melgar's death, the New York Times reported citing unnamed military officials, may have been caused by strangulation.

Staff Sergeant Logan Melgar, 34, was found dead in the U.S. government compound he shared with other Special Operations forces in the Malian capital, Bamako. His body was discovered within embassy housing where he lived with other Special Ops forces, and his death was immediately considered suspicious.

After the incident, the two unidentified SEALs were flown out of Mali and placed on administrative leave, the Times reports.

Christopher Grey, a spokesman for the Army's Criminal Investigative Division told The Post that its agents responded to Melgar's death and turned over its findings to NCIS.

Historic Win For Wonderful Winx
Just as she's done in so many of her historic wins, Winx ambled up on the leaders, appearing as comfortable as ever. Seven horses signed up to race her with Humidor , the 13-1 shot domestically, her toughest challenger.

The 34-year-old Melgar had served through two Afghanistan tours before being deployed to Mali to assist with counterterrorism missions.

Army Criminal Investigation Command looked into the case for several months before passing it off to the Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS).

Melgar was found dead at a US government compound in the country Mali in June.

The New York Times was the first outlet to report two Navy SEALs were under investigation for Melgar's death, which a medical examiner described as "a homicide by asphyxiation", according to Fox News. Four Americans and four Nigeriens were killed in the attack, turning the spotlight on Washington's military operations in Africa where over 6,000 USA troops are now stationed.
