WHAT KILLED AIR FORCE ACADEMY CADET
Alex Quiros was the type of cadet the Air Force Academy prides itself in.
The 21 year-old Colorado Springs native was popular at the AFA, a Dean's List student, and was set to graduate in May. Now he's dead, and a cloak of mystery surrounds the circumstances of his sudden demise.
All a spokesperson would say was Alex was found "injured" in a dorm (Sijan Hall?) Thursday afternoon, rushed to a hospital and died a short time later. The extent of the injuries has not been disclosed, and that has fellow cadets, faculty and plenty of people in the Colorado Springs community wondering what really happened?
John Van Winkle told reporters the death "was NOT an apparent suicide." That's interesting, because in normal circumstances, that "cause" of death comes in handy whenever a top commander wants to get a problem "off his plate." Just declare a military death "suicide," and no need from that point on, to search for and find a perpetrator.
"There is no indication of foul play," the Air Force flak said.
THINGS JUST DON'T 'ADD UP'
Well, if Quiros didn't fatally injure himself, and there is "no evidence" of foul play, someone else had to be involved.
We recognize the need sometimes for a virtual news blackout as to "ongoing investigations," but the OSI saying almost nothing about the details, runs up several red flags.. They know a lot more than they are telling us.
