NAVY SEAL ARRESTED IN DEATH OF CIVILIAN
© 2016 MilitaryCorruption.com
Navy SEALS are, by nature, rough, tough service members who, at times, can be belligerent, but have plenty to brag about. Their training is among the toughest in the world, and to wear he Trident badge is a real honor. So, getting in altercations with others sometimes happens.
It was no surprise, then, on June 11, when local cops were called to the famed Santa Monica pier to break up a fist-fight between PO1 Theo Krah and another man, the combatants were pulled apart, lectured, and then let go without an arrest being made.
However, more than an hour later, the unidentified civilian was found a block away, badly beaten around the head and bleeding from multiple stab wounds. He died in the hospital not long after being rushed to the emergency room.
Now, what started as a routine brawl, has turned into a possible homicide.
KRAH AND VICTIM DIDN'T KNOW EACH OTHER
Santa Monica cops tell MilitaryCorruption.com that Krah is being held behind bars in lieu of $2 million bail while detectives investigate the case and decide weather or not to bring murder charges against the four-year Navy veteran.
The NCIS (Naval Criminal Investigative Service) has confirmed they are looking into the matter as well.
Krah, a member of West Coast Naval Special Warfare Group 1, is 28 years old. Investigators say the SEAL and his alleged victim apparently didn't know each other before the fight began. We have no word if a knife has been recovered.
We are still waiting to find out if alcohol played a part in the fatal altercation.
