Officials tight-lipped about military murder at Camp Lejeune

Friday, November 6th, 2009

Body

Twenty-one-year-old Private Jonathan Law is in custody for the murder of another Marine early Friday morning. Officials still have their own questions regarding the incident, and are saying little about what they do know.

“A lot of your questions today are going to fall into two categories. On one hand, there are going to be a lot of unanswered questions because I simply don’t have the information. On the other hand, there’s going to be questions that I won’t answer because of the pending investigation,” said US Marine Capt. Timothy Patrick.

Military authorities took Private Jonathan Law into custody after the body was found in the woods, near the French Creek area of the base. Law is a decorated Marine who joined the Corps in 2006 and served in Iraq.

Capt. Patrick said, “He’s being treated for apparent self-inflicted wounds at Pitt Memorial Hospital in Greenville.”

Law has not been formerly charged with the murder. Officials would not release the victims identity or comment on the murder weapon, except to say it was not a gun.

Locals and visitors were shocked by the event. “I have never heard anything like that. I’ve heard of civilians killing civilians, but not military killing military,” Robert Hoffman of Jacksonville said.

Officials said it is unclear if anyone else was involved and the incident is still being investigated.

On the heels of Thursday’s murders at Fort Hood, Camp Lejeune officials said they would look into their security measures, although for now they said there is no connection between the two incidents.
