  • Navy investigating two SEALs in connection with death of Green Beret: report

Two members of the U.S. Navy's elite SEAL Team 6 are being investigated in the strangulation death of an Army Green Beret in Mali, according to reports Sunday.

Melgar shared housing with Special Operations forces assigned to Mali to help with training counterterrorism, the Times reported.

And while no arrests have been made, the two SEALS were flown out of the country nearly immediately afterward and put on administrative leave, the New York Times reports. Medical examiners ruled this a homicide, three sources told the Times. "Agents from the Army's Criminal Investigation Command spent months on the case before handing it off last month to the Naval Criminal Investigative Service", the NY Times said. The two have since been placed in administrative leave.

A U.S. official told CNN jurisdiction for the investigation shifted from the Army investigation service to the Navy in September. Further, their status has shifted throughout the probe from "witnesses" to "persons of interest" with the two now formally becoming suspects.

A spokesman for NCIS, said he couldn't comment on an ongoing investigation.

The ambush in Niger that killed 4 us soldiers, two of which being Green Berets, is still under investigation. Gunmen attacked a luxury resort in Mali the same month Melgar died, and in August there were two separate attacks on United Nations missions there.
