Crooked Navy SEALs May Be Behind Murder Of Green Beret

Sgt. Logan Melgar

Furthermore, the team also took on members of other units who had been disciplined for similar behavior, in 2007 accepting a former Gold Squadron sniper who left his unit after killing three unarmed people - including a child - in two operations.

However, the SEALs apparently didn't realize that an autopsy would determine if alcohol or drugs were found in Melgar's system. After Melgar's death, the SEALS then filed "at least one operational report about the incident and possibly two ..."

The Daily Beast article cites two special operations sources as saying the SEALs under investigation over Melgar's death had been taking money from a fund used to pay informants.

It isn't clear what happened that sparked an altercation between Melgar and the two SEALs at around 5am on June 4.

Late last month we learned that two Navy SEALs were under investigation for the mysterious death of an Army Green Beret in June.

"If the reported facts were established, the murder of Staff Sgt. Melgar would be among the most aggravating factors and could justify referral to courts-martial as capital cases", Brennan wrote to Business Insider.

In late October, it was announced the death of Sergeant Logan J. Melgar at United States embassy housing in Bamako, Mali had been ruled a homicide by strangulation, and two Navy SEALs, who had been staying in the same building had been officially placed under suspicion - now, it's been suggested Melgar may have been killed to stop him speaking out about the theft of funds by the elite team.

In a panic the SEALs attempted to open an airway in Melgar's throat, officials said.

When he confronted them about it, the sources say the pair told Melgar they could get him a cut of the money in return for his silence.

Uber also has been embroiled in a fight in Quebec over the province's rules for ride-hailing services. Last month, Lyft announced a $1 billion investment round led by Google parent company Alphabet.

But it was a bad excuse because the autopsy report eventually came back, proving that there were no traces of drugs or alcohol in the Green Beret's system.

However, the SEALs told superiors that Melgar was drunk during hand-to-hand fight exercises, the Daily Beast reported. Those sources claim she raised concerns about his cause of death and the reports of his drinking.

Authorities nearly immediately suspected foul play and have spent months investigating, The Times said.

Another Africa Command official told the Daily Beast that Brig.

The two Navy SEALs have been placed on administrative leave.

The investigation was fist reported by the New York Times and has sent shock-waves through the special-op community.

Melgar, a graduate of Texas Tech University, joined the Army in 2012 and was assigned to the 3rd Special Forces Group, based at Fort Bragg, North Carolina. He graduated from Special Forces Qualification in 2016.

Melgar was from Lubbock, Texas, and had twice served in Afghanistan.
