U.S. Soldier Found Dead at South Korea’s Camp Carroll

A soldier of the U.S Army was found dead at a South Korean military base, Newsweek reported Friday, citing Stars and Stripes.

According to sources, the deceased soldier was based at Camp Carroll, near South Korea’s city of Daegu, and approximately 150 miles from its capital Seoul.

The death at the military camp is currently being investigated, a spokesman for the United States Army has said, adding that the name of the deceased will be revealed in the next 24 hours in order to allow more time to notify the family of the event.

The soldier was a member of the 35th Air Defense Artillery Brigade, which is part of the Eighth U.S. Army. No other details were provided.

According to ABC News, the soldier is the second to die in less than four months from Camp Carroll. Sergeant Eric Schenck, 33, of California, was killed in December when he was hit on the side of the road by a truck after getting out of his vehicle following a minor car accident, according to the Army.

Around 28,500 U.S. service members are based across South Korea, which remains at war with the North having never signed a peace treaty to end the 1950-53 Korean War.
