ST LOUIS (LALATE) – The solider Skype death of Capt Bruce Kevin Clark prompted an Army denial today. Capt Bruce Kevin Clark died during a Skype session with his wife. But while Susan Orellana-Clark questioned if her husband was shot during the Skype chat, military investigators confirmed to news Monday that the solider was not shot.
Officials confirm thatÂ the soldierâ€™s cause of death is unknown. But they claim he was not shot and was not a victim of foul play. Army Criminal Investigation Command spokesman Chris Grey said in a news statement today that there was no bullet hole behind the solider. “We can positively say that Captain Clark was not shot,” Grey told news today.
Grey said Clark had no trauma to the body.Â “Agents conducting the investigation, found no trauma to the body beyond minor abrasions and a possible broken nose most likely caused from Captain Clark striking his face on his desk when he collapsed”. Grey added “Although we have not completely ruled it out to ensure a complete and thorough investigation is conducted, we do not suspect foul play in the death of Captain Clark at this point in our ongoing investigation”.
The soldierâ€™s cause of death is pending autopsy and toxicology results. His wife had previously sought details “to honor my husband and dispel the inaccurate information and supposition promulgated by other parties.”
Officials tell news that “After two hours and many frantic phone calls by Mrs. Clark, two military personnel arrived in the room and appeared to check his pulse, but provided no details about his condition to his wife.” Clarkâ€™s funeral arrangements have not been announced to news. His body is currently at Dover Air Force Base.
