Missing Fort Bragg soldier was decapitated, investigators say
The young man's severed head washed ashore on May 29
The severed head that washed ashore in North Carolina near Cape Lookout National Seashore in May has been identified as 21-year-old Enrique Roman-Martinez, a soldier from Fort Bragg.
Roman-Martinez, a paratrooper with the 82nd Airborne Division, was last seen May 22. Friends reported him missing three days later, after finding his phone and wallet at a campsite. His severed head was found May 29.
The rest of Roman-Martinez's body was not found, but medical examiners concluded that the injuries around his neck were consistent with decapitation and ruled his death a homicide.
Special agents with the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command are offering a $15,000-$25,000 reward for information leading to an arrest in the case.
Officials are also investigating the murders of a soldier and a veterans whose bodies were discovered in early December at a Fort Bragg, N.C., training area.
