Full title: SEAL Team Four commander in Afghanistan 'commits suicide' as body of married father is found shot dead
The Dead Pool file (FYI)
I wondered who all the dead people were...
What a weird headline. Some “married father” was found dead, and then the SEAL guy committed suicide? No, wait, it’s just the one dead man ...
But seriously, I’m sorry to read this. I saw the earlier post about the death, and hoped it was a jeep accident or something “typical.”
Ted the Turd Turner must be gleeful right now.
Wonder what he knew?
Maybe he knew too much about Benghazi? Had to be silenced the Chicago Way.
You can say that again. I thought he killed himself after his father was killed.
Prayers for him and for his family.
Suicide..., yeah, sure....
Cohesive Strategy alert. Military purge continues.
you said exactly what I was thinking.
“He leaves behind a wife, Stephanie and a nine-year-old daughter Jillian, who both live in Virginia Beach.”
While in command...and
THREE DAYS BEFORE CHRISTMAS, he kills himself?!?
I don’t believe it.
Unfortunately it happens. We all ask why when it happens. A former business partner and a BIL both committed suicide for unknown reasons. I won't go into details other than to state one shot himself in the head and the other hanged himself. It was totally devastating to their family members.
I wonder if the leaker is going to put directions to the house on google maps and zillow for al Qaeda and everyone else who might want to visit to follow?
I second that!
