A US soldier has been found dead at his Mannheim barracks in the German state of Baden-Württemberg after not reporting for duty, US Army spokesperson Hilde Patton told The Local on Friday.

The soldier from the 1st Battalion, 214th Aviation Regiment was found in the Coleman Barracks at 9:30 am on Thursday by unit personnel and pronounced dead on the scene by a German doctor, Patton said.

“We can’t reveal any more personal information until the next of kin are notified, and then we wait another 24 hours to give the family some personal grieving time,” Patton told The Local.

The incident is under investigation by both German and US Army authorities. Patton said she could not reveal whether foul play was suspected in the death.

In late January another soldier was found dead in the barracks at Grafenwöhr military base in the German state of Bavaria.
