SAVANNAH, Ga. – Army officials say the fatal stabbing of a soldier found bleeding outside his barracks less than a day after he returned from Iraq may have resulted from a domestic fight.
Authorities said a delivery driver found the soldier bleeding late Wednesday at Georgia's Fort Stewart.
Military police and the FBI are investigating but released few details, including the slain soldier's identity.
Fort Stewart spokesman Kevin Larson said Thursday that the investigators suspect the soldier may have been stabbed during a domestic dispute. He declined to elaborate, citing the ongoing investigation.
Larson said the slain soldier had returned from a yearlong deployment to Iraq about 18 hours before he was killed.
