A Fort Wainwright solder was pronounced dead at a Fairbanks hospital after being transported there from his barracks with a severe head injury.
U.S. Army Alaska spokesman Chuck Canterbury on Monday announced the death but few other details from the Sunday incident. He said the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Detachment at Fort Wainwright is investigating the death. Canterbury said he had no other information about the incident but said no one was in custody.
Canterbury said even though the soldier's relatives have been notified of the death, the name won't be released to the public until Tuesday, per Army policy.
