Officials Probing Whether Navy SEALs Strangled Green Beret to Death

The military is investigating whether two Navy SEALs strangled an Army Green Beret to death in Mali earlier this year, The New York Times reports. The Green Beret, Staff Sgt. Logan J. Melgar, was found dead on June 4 in his housing unit that he shared with other U.S. Special Operations troops. His death was ruled a homicide by strangulation, and the case was assigned last month to the Naval Criminal Investigative Service. The two Navy SEALs, members of the elite Team 6, have since been placed on administrative leave.
