FORT BELVOIR, Va. -- A U.S. Army investigation into the death of Staff Sgt. Amy Seyboth Tirador, 29, concluded she killed herself.
Criminal Investigation Command announced the results of its investigation today. “Our investigation resulted in the same determination as made by the Armed Forces Medical Examiner at the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology,” said Chris Grey, chief of public affairs.
The Army has now closed the case.
The medical examiner earlier this year ruled Tirador’s death a suicide, but her family believes she was murdered and that the Army is covering up the real reason she was killed. Tirador’s body was found inside a building within the perimeter of Camp Caldwell, a secure base, in Kirkush, Iraq, on Nov. 4. She had been shot in the head.
