LEA GRAY DISAPPEARED FROM CAMP GEORGE
APARTMENT ON APRIL 20 - BODY FOUND MAY 7
Was it "murder" in the case of a missing officer's wife, whose lifeless body was discovered earlier this month in a mountain valley not far from Camp Carroll in Waegwan, Korea?
The Army is especially tight-lipped about this case. All we could find out at press time is the name of the victim: 27 year-old Lea Gray.
The wife of CPT Christopher Gray of the 25th Transportation Battalion, the woman disappeared from the couple's Camp George apartment in Daegu on April 20. Her body was found 17 days later.
No details on the whereabouts of CPT Gray or whether charges might be filed against him were forthcoming. However, sources said investigators will be moving forward on that front "in the near future."
The Gray apartment has been padlocked, Stars & Stripes reported. The GI's favorite newspaper deserves kudos for keeping after the brass to get an interview with the mysterious officer husband.
"We are not going to divulge details of the case pending the preferral of charges," 8th Army spokesman Lt. Col.. Brodrick Bailey told the paper.
