Japanese police are investigating the death of Petty Officer 2nd Class Samuel Lewis Stiles, 25, whose body was found in a Sasebo train station early Sunday morning, according to the Stars and Stripes.

Stiles was found lying face down on a platform at the train station in Nagasaki. Stars and Stripes reports Japanese media as saying the death was an accident, claiming...

[Stiles] fell and hit his head after climbing atop a train, where he was electrocuted by an overhead power line.

Stiles was assigned to U.S. Fleet Activities Sasebo, but lived off base.
