FORT BRAGG, N.C. (AP) — Authorities are investigating the death of a soldier found unresponsive in his barracks at a military base last week.

Pvt. Jamie Wyatt Boger, of Ohio, died at Fort Bragg on March 16, the army base said in a statement obtained by news outlets Thursday.

The Fort Bragg Criminal Investigation Division was assigned to investigate the cause, officials said.

Boger enlisted in the Army in March 2019 and was a student at the U.S. Army John F. Kennedy Special Warfare Center and School at Fort Bragg, The Fayetteville Observer reported. He was assigned to the Special Warfare Medical Group there in October for medical rehabilitation of a training injury, officials said.

Gov. Roy Cooper ordered all U.S. and North Carolina flags at state facilities to be lowered to half-staff this week in honor of Boger and three other Fort Bragg soldiers who have died since January, according to the state’s Department of Administration.
