Breaking: US Soldier Found Dead At South Korean Military Base, 2nd Time In 4 Months

It is being reported that on Friday morning, a U.S. soldier was found dead at a military base in South Korea.

ABC News reports an investigation is underway for the unnamed U.S. soldier who was “unresponsive and pronounced dead” at Camp Carroll in Daegu City, South Korea.

According to the report, the military service member was in the 35th Air Defense Artillery unit.

Per the report:

The solder is the second to die in less than four months from Camp Carroll. Sgt. Eric Schenck, 33, of California, was killed in December when he was hit on the side of the road by a truck after getting out of his vehicle following a minor car accident, according to the Army.

The 35th Air Defense Artillery is part of the 8th Army.

Stars and Stripes reports there are roughly 28,500 American troops stationed in South Korea.

Here’s more on Camp Carroll, via Newsweek:

Camp Carroll was built in 1959 and named for Charles Carroll, a posthumous recipient of the Distinguished Service Cross for acts of heroism during the Korean War.

The camp is located close to the site of the Hill 303 Massacre, where North Korean forces captured hundreds of American soldiers during the Battle of Pusan Perimeter, executing 41 of them using machine guns. The bodies were found with their hands still tied behind their backs.

The Sun reports the unexpected death comes amid anticipation of a historic meeting between North Korean Dictator Kim Jong-Un and President Trump:

South Korean national security adviser Chung Eui Yong said that Jong-un “expressed his eagerness to meet President Trump as soon as possible”.

Speaking outside the White House on Thursday, he said Jong-un told the South Koreans he is “committed to denuclearisation” and pledged that “North Korea will refrain from any further nuclear or missile tests.”

The White House said the historic diplomatic meeting between the powerful leaders would take place, but wouldn’t reveal when or where.

Here’s more on the upcoming meeting, via Fox News:

The White House confirmed that Trump will accept an invitation by Kim to meet. The dictator extended the invitation and the president agreed that the two would meet by May, South Korean National Security Adviser Chung Eui-yong announced.

The most recent round of significant talks involving the U.S. and North Korea concluded in 2009. The so-called six-party talks, which involved the U.S., North Korea, South Korea, Japan, Russia and China, ended when North Korea walked out.
