Name released in murder of Camp Lejeune Marine

Camp Lejeune has released the name of the Marine murdered early Friday morning. Meanwhile, charges are still pending against a fellow Marine. Twenty-one-year-old Jonathan Law was released from Pitt Memorial Hospital late Saturday night, where he was treated for self-inflicted wounds. He is now in the brig at Camp Lejeune. The victim, 22-year-old Corporal Joshua Hartzell was found Friday morning in the woods near the French Creek area of Camp Lejeune. Locals and visitors were shocked by the news. “Hearing it's happening here, it does get you a little nervous because military bases you want to think they're tops,” said Helen Ryan. Officials said it is unclear if anyone else was involved and would not comment on the murder weapon, except to say it was not a gun. The murder is still under investigation.
