Authorities at Fort Eisenhower are confirming an active death investigation is underway on base.
The base’s Criminal Investigation Division was responding Wednesday to the death of a family member who lives on base, according to Anne H. Bowman, deputy public affairs officer at the base, formerly known as Fort Gordon. Bowman could not confirm reports the death involved an infant who was slain. Coroner Mark Bowen does not get involved with deaths on the base.
Bowman referred other questions to a regional public affairs officer out of Quantico, Virginia.
Thomas B. Hamilton III with the U.S. Army’s Public Affairs CID group released this statement: “The Department of the Army Criminal Investigation Division is aware of and investigating this incident. As the investigation is in progress, no additional information can be provided at this time.”
