Family of soldier who died at Fort Hood says details of death 'don't add up'


September 14, 2020

The family of a soldier who died at Fort Hood Army Base suspects foul play may have contributed to his death and says the official version of the story leaves more questions than answers.

Navajo Nation leaders issued a statement on Monday demanding a congressional inquiry into the deaths of two tribal members stationed at Fort Hood — Spc. Miguel Yazzie, 33, and Pvt. Corlton Chee, 25. Yazzie and Chee died over the summer, but in separate incidents at the base in Killeen, Texas.

"We spoke with the families of Pvt. Chee and Spc. Yazzie and they have many concerns and questions related to inconsistent information and details provided by military officials," Navajo Nation President Jonathan Nez wrote in the statement. "It is very troubling that while they are mourning the loss of their loved ones, they are not receiving adequate and timely factual information regarding the time leading up to their deaths."
