    Navy SEALs Investigated for Green Beret Murder

    http://www.businessinsider.com/logan...lation-2017-11

    A witness in the investigation of the death of US Army Staff Sgt. Logan Melgar shed light on a possible motive, according to military documents obtained by NBC News.

    The witness recounted that Petty Officer Tony DeDolph, a Navy SEAL, said he and others wanted to "get back" at Melgar, a Green Beret, for what they perceived as a slight against them, NBC News reported Monday. The witness in the report alleged that several people were upset at Melgar "after they felt he intentionally tried to evade them while he was driving to a party." DeDolph allegedly told a witness that he "choked [him] out," referring to Melgar.

    DeDolph suggested that he and fellow SEAL Adam Cranston Matthews used duct tape on Melgar, the witness said, according to NBC News. The witness also said that the SEALs, who may have been afraid that their actions could be viewed as hazing, did not mention the duct tape in their interviews with investigators.

    Two navy seals are no longer considered as witness, but now as persons of interest. Bad news if they were stealing and murdered to try and cover up.

    "Whether the SEALs were involved in the death remained unclear as the investigation continued. The commandos were initially described as "witnesses," but authorities later changed that to "persons of interest." Officials said Melgar's cause of death was "homicide by asphyxiation.""

    Not good for image, for sure.
