Fort Bragg, N.C. — Fort Bragg officials are investigating the death of a paratrooper.
Pfc. Todd J. Patrick, 24, of Kiln, Miss., was found dead in his barracks Sunday, post officials said Tuesday. They did not provide further details.
Patrick was a fire control specialist with the 82nd Airborne Division's 1st Battalion, 319th Airborne Field Artilery Regiment, 3rd Brigade Combat Team.
"Pfc. Patrick was what we expect and want our paratroopers to be in the 82nd Airborne Division: physically fit, disciplined and self-motivated," Lt. Col. Shane Morgan said in a release by the Army post.
Patrick joined the Army in June 2011.
