The bodies of a soldier, her husband, and their two children were found by military police on Wednesday afternoon. The welfare check was initiated by members of the soldier's unit, as stated in the official statement released by Fort Stewart officials.
While the statement did not provide any information regarding the search for suspects, it did describe the deaths as an "isolated incident" and assured the public that there is no threat to the broader community.
Due to the ongoing investigation, Fort Stewart spokesperson Kevin Larson refrained from providing further comments.
Thomas Hamilton, a spokesperson for the Army Criminal Investigation Division, confirmed that the individuals involved in the incident have been identified. However, he declined to disclose whether any suspects have been apprehended or are currently being pursued.
At this time, the Army has not released the names of the deceased individuals.
Fort Stewart, situated approximately 40 miles southwest of Savannah, is the largest Army post east of the Mississippi River. It serves as the home to the Army's 3rd Infantry Division, playing a vital role in the nation's defense.
