The Navy is investigating two unnamed members of the elite SEAL Team 6 in the death of an Army Green Beret who was found strangled to death in Mali last June, according to a report published Sunday.
Staff Sgt. Logan J. Melgar, 34, was found dead June 4 in embassy housing he shared with other Special Operations forces staying in Bamako, Mali.
Melgar's superiors, based in Stuttgart, Germany, sent an investigating officer to Bamako immediately after the incident because they suspected foul play, the New York Times reported.
A military medical examiner ruled the death a homicide due to strangulation.
The two SEALs were flown out of Mali and put on administrative leave shortly after the incident.
The Army's Criminal Investigation Command spent months investigating before turning the case over to Naval officials in September.
