Death investigation underway at Goldsboro home

— Seymour Johnson Air Force Base officials released the name on Thursday of an airman found dead Tuesday in his Goldsboro home.

Tech Sgt. David J. Devier, an aircraft maintenance crew chief with the 911th Air Refueling Station, was found dead at a Brantwood Drive home. His cause of death is being investigated by the Air Force Office of Special Investigations.

Devier had been stationed at Seymour Johnson since April 2016.

“We lost a member of our family yesterday. It hits home and affects us all,” Col. Eric Jenkins, 916th Air Refueling Wing commander, said in a statement. “Our thoughts and prayers go out to David’s family."

4th Fighter Wing mental health and chaplain personnel have been meeting with Devier’s co-workers and friends and will continue to be available to anyone needing their services during this difficult time, officials said.
