Authorities at Fort Bragg are investigating the death of a paratrooper who was found unresponsive in his barracks last weekend and who later died.
    
The base said Wednesday that 21-year-old Spc. Robert P. Wasser of Marysville, Wash., was a military police officer with the 82nd Airborne Division.
    
The base says he was found unresponsive in his barracks Saturday morning and later pronounced dead. The cause of the death has not been determined.
    
Wasser joined the Army in April of 2010 and was deployed to Afghanistan from June to September of that year.
    
Later in 2010 he completed U.S. Army Airborne School at Fort Benning, Ga., and was assigned to the 82nd Airborne Division.
