SEAL Team 6 members under investigation in death of Green Beret

The New York Times reports that Staff Sergeant Logan Melgar, 34, was strangled to death in embassy housing he shared with other Special Operations forces in Bamako on June 4.

Staff Sergeant Logan Melgar, 34, was found dead in the United States government compound he shared with other Special Operations forces in the Malian capital, Bamako.

The Army's Criminal Investigation Command reportedly investigated the death for months after a coroner ruled his cause of death was homicide caused by strangulation, according to the New York Times. No further details of the investigation have been released.

Attendees perform tasks in the dark using military night vision technology at the History exhibit to promote the new television series "Six", based on Navy SEAL Team Six, during CES in Las Vegas, Nevada, January 7, 2017. Right now, there are no charges, and the two SEALs, who have not been identified, are being described as "persons of interest".

Weather: Heavy Rain & Gusty Wind for Sunday
It's been a cloudy Sunday with periods of rain but temperatures still relatively mild, topping out well into the 60s. Also, if traveling, be sure to slow down to avoid hydroplaning and be mindful of slick roads due to fallen leaves.

A motive has not yet been determined, though some suggest it may have been a personal dispute, while others wonder if Melgar uncovered some illegal activity in which the Navy commandos might have been involved. The probe is reportedly examining if two Navy SEALs may have played a role in the death of the Green Beret who served two tours in Afghanistan. The West African country of Mali borders Niger, where four US soldiers were killed during an ambush earlier this month.

Melgar is scheduled to be buried at Arlington National Cemetery on November 20.

Melgar was a member of the 3rd Special Forces Group, which is the primary unit responsible for Army special operations in northwest Africa, including Mali and Niger. After working the case for months, the Army handed the case off to the Naval Criminal Investigative Service, the Times said.
