Three Years After the Death of Pfc. LaVena Johnson in Iraq, Her Parents Continue Their Call for a Congressional Investigation
*Three years ago, on July 19, 2005, Army Private First Class LaVena Johnson was found dead in Balad, Iraq.
Her body was found in a tent belonging to the private military contractor KBR. She had abrasions all over her body, a broken nose, a black eye, burned hands, loose teeth, acid burns on her genitals, and a bullet hole in her head. The Army labeled Johnson's death a suicide.
But her parents never believed that story. They think she was raped and murdered and are now demanding a full congressional investigation into their daughter's death.
