Service Member Found DEAD In Pentagon Parking Lot


Law enforcement officers found a dead military service member inside of their car in the Pentagon’s parking lot.

The Pentagon Force Protection Agency found the dead body after performing a wellness check of the person inside the car.

The body was discovered Tuesday of last week and as of right now, no details have been given regarding how the service member died.

Check out what the Military Times reported:

Police found a service member deceased in his car in the Pentagon parking lot on Tuesday afternoon, spokesman Air Force Brig. Gen. Ryder announced late Monday.

Following a request for a welfare check, officers from the Pentagon Force Protection Agency discovered the service member and called Arlington County Emergency Medical Services, who confirmed the death, Ryder said in a statement.

“An investigation is ongoing,” he said, adding that no additional details are available.

Fox News got the scoop too:

A military service member was found dead in a vehicle parked outside the Pentagon Tuesday afternoon, according to a Defense Department spokesperson.

Pentagon press secretary Brig. Gen. Pat Ryder said officers responded to a call for a welfare check when they found the body of the unidentified individual.

“At approximately 3:30 p.m. EDT today the Pentagon Operations Center received a call requesting a welfare check on a military service member,” Ryder said.

Ryder said Pentagon police officers responded to the North Parking, where they discovered the service member in his vehicle apparently deceased.

Arlington County Emergency Medical Services also responded and confirmed the individual was deceased, according to the spokesperson.

No additional details on the individual’s identity or cause of death were provided.
