  • Frenship ISD									Army Staff Sergeant Logan Melgar right died suspiciously in June while serving in Mali

The New York Times first reported the probe into the death of a staff sergeant found dead in USA embassy housing in the Malian capital of Bamako on June 4.

The Navy is investigating two members from Navy SEAL Team 6 to find out whether or not they strangled a Green Beret to death in Mali.

Attendees perform tasks in the dark using military night vision technology at the History exhibit to promote the new television series "Six", based on Navy SEAL Team Six, during CES in Las Vegas, Nevada, January 7, 2017. Their status shifted from "witnesses" to "persons of interest" with two now formally becoming suspects in the murder. The official said the transfer of jurisdiction indicates that Navy personnel are subjects of the investigation.

Four U.S. soldiers who were killed in Niger in October were also part of the same group. The Naval Criminal Investigation Service, who took over the probe from the Army's Criminal Investigation Command on September 25, aren't saying anything. He declined to address how Melgar died, saying NCIS does not discuss the details of ongoing investigations. The room where Melgar was found resembled that of a bomb going off inside.

Christopher Grey, a spokesman for the Army's Criminal Investigative Division told The Post that its agents responded to Melgar's death and turned over its findings to NCIS. The Army veteran was sharing quarters with members of several other Special Operations forces, most involved in training and counterterrorism missions in the West African nation.
