This article includes numerous comments. It is interesting to read the various "takes" on the idea that a soldier may have been murdered on base.

Thanks to Lois Vanderbur for alerting me to this non-combat death. I've noticed that the Department of Defense is not consistently announcing non-combat deaths in the US and does not always include cause of death in their official announcements.
