U.S. Army officials are investigating the death of a Fort Stewart soldier while on a deployment.
U.S. Army Europe and Africa public affairs officials said Pfc. Denisha Montgomery, assigned to the 139th Military Police Company, was found unresponsive in her barracks room August 9 on Lucius Clay Kaserne, in Wiesbaden, Germany. Emergency services were immediately called and the scene was secured until their arrival. She was pronounced dead on the scene.
Pfc. Montgomery was scheduled to return to Fort Stewart with her unit at the end of September.
“We are saddened by the loss of Pfc. Montgomery,” U.S. Army Europe and Africa Command officials said in a release. “Our thoughts are with her family and loved ones during this difficult time.”
The incident is currently under investigation by the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Division. A complete and thorough investigation will be conducted, officials said.
“We take any and all accusations regarding this incident seriously and request everyone refrain from posting unsubstantiated information to social media platforms,” U.S. Army Europe and Africa Command officials said.
