Army News, 29 October 2017 -- Two members of the Navy’s elite SEAL Team 6 are
being investigated for strangling a Green Beret while he was stationed in Mali in June,
according to a report Sunday.
Navy criminal investigators launched a probe into the commandos after Army Staff
Sgt. Logan Melgar, a veteran of two deployments to Afghanistan, was found dead
June 4 in housing he shared with other special operations forces at the embassy in the
Malian capital of Bamako, The New York Times reported.
Melgar’s superiors in Germany suspected foul play and immediately sent an
investigator to the scene, the newspaper reported.
The Army’s Criminal Investigation Command examined the circumstances around the
34-year-old Melgar’s death for months and then turned it over to the Naval Criminal
Investigative Service in September.
No one has been charged in Melgar’s death, but two Navy SEALs, who have not been
identified, have been removed from Mali and placed on administrative leave, the report
Melgar’s death was ruled a homicide-strangulation.
Soldiers in the Green Beret community have been shaken by the killing and have been
left to speculate whether there was bad blood between Melgar and the SEALs or
whether he might have uncovered some illegal activity they were involved in and they
executed him, the newspaper reported.
A spokesman for NCIS said he couldn’t comment on an ongoing investigation.
The revelations about Melgar’s death come as four American soldiers were killed
earlier this month in an ambush in Niger, which borders Mali in Africa.
Military officials are still trying to determine what happened and why one of the
soldiers, Sgt. La David Johnson, was found dead two days later after getting
separated from the group.
