Quantico, Va., May 7, 2012 -- The U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command, commonly referred to as CID, released the following statement today in regard to the May 1, 2012 death of Capt. Bruce Clark:

"We express our sincere condolences to the family, friends, and fellow Soldiers of Captain Bruce Clark who recently died in Afghanistan and we know this is a very traumatic and difficult time for all involved. Although the investigation into his death is open and ongoing by Special Agents from the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command, we can positively

say that Captain Clark was not shot. Agents conducting the investigation, found no trauma to the body beyond minor abrasions and a possible broken nose most likely caused from Captain Clark striking his face on his desk when he collapsed.

The investigation into the death of Captain Clark will continue and we will consider all available evidence before reaching a final determination. Although we have not completely ruled it out to ensure a complete and thorough investigation is conducted, we do not suspect foul play in the death of Captain Clark at this point in our ongoing investigation. We will continue to keep the next of kin updated as the investigation continues."

This statement can be attributed to Chris Grey, the spokesperson for U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command.
