Army finds no evidence of link in Fort Bragg infant deaths


FORT BRAGG, N.C. (AP) -- The U.S. Army has completed an
investigation of 10 infant deaths at Fort Bragg without finding any
evidence of a common environmental link or of crimes.

The Army's Criminal Investigation Command said Thursday that it
completed its 11-month review of 10 infant deaths where the medical
examiner classified the cause of death as "undetermined." Two
other infants died after the review began and are being
investigated separately, but the CID says it's found no causal link
between those two deaths and the 10 included in the review.

The investigation began after three infants associated with one
home on Fort Bragg died within a three-year period. CID began
investigating those deaths and added seven others from a four-year
period that also were classified as "undetermined."
