Spc. Megan Touma, 23, who was assigned to the 19th Replacement Detachment, was seven months pregnant at the time of her death, police said.
Fort Bragg officials said Touma was assigned to the base earlier this month. A dental specialist from Cold Spring, Ky., who had been in the Army for five years, she previously was assigned to Army dental clinics in Germany and at Fort Drum, N.Y., officials said.
Touma's body was found Saturday morning in a room at the Fairfield Inn at 5000 Morganton Road. Police said she appeared to have been dead for about two days before she was found.
The cause of her death hasn't been determined.
A private memorial service for Touma will be held Friday at Hope Chapel.
