Camp Pendleton Death A Possible Suicide

The Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) is investigating the death of a Marine at Camp Pendleton on Monday morning as a possible suicide, according to the North County Times:

[T]here was no immediate indication that it was not a suicide. The Marine Corps does not routinely report where its <a href="http://www.forbes.com/sites/rickungar/2012/05/07/the-veteran-suicide-explosion-and-you/">suicides</a> occur, but 11 of the suicides last year were Camp Pendleton Marines, according to statistics provided to the North County Times.

Camp Pendleton officials told the North County Times the Marine, a young adult male, died at 9:40 Monday morning. No other information about the deceased has been released.
