The United States Army launched an investigation into the mysterious death of a soldier, Alex Mathew Dean Taylor, who was found unresponsive at his post on the Fort Hood base. Even more shocking is the fact that this soldier’s death is the latest in a string of deaths of soldiers serving in this massive Texas encampment.

The Stars and Stripes report: “The Army’s Criminal Investigations Command has launched an investigation into Taylor’s death, said Christopher Grey, a spokesman for the command.
“At this point in the investigative process we do not suspect foul play, but have not completely ruled it out while we conduct a complete and thorough death investigation,” Grey said Friday.”
According to the Fox News, Taylor is at least the 11th soldier to die at Fort Hood since the October 12: “Three other soldiers were found unresponsive in October, November, and December. Their deaths are under investigation by the Army and police in two Texas towns.
Three other soldiers died from gunshot wounds. One of them, Pvt. Kevin Paulino, 24, died from a gunshot while he was in Indiana. The Army said the soldiers’ deaths were under investigation.
Another two died of illnesses and two others died in auto crashes.
Investigators found the body of Pvt. Dakota Stump, 19, of Avon, Indiana, in the woods next to his, flipped over vehicle Nov. 3, three weeks after he had been reported missing and declared AWOL.”
