A 1st Infantry Division soldier station at Fort Riley was found dead Sunday in Junction City.
Junction City police officers found the body of 37-year-old Staff Sgt. Garett Swift when they were called to his home for a welfare check.
Lt. Jeff Childs says the call came from friends of Swift who were concerned about his well-being.
Childs says there is no foul play suspected and Swift’s death is not being investigated as a homicide.
Childs could not elaborate on the condition of the soldier’s body, but says the death was not the result of a gunshot wound.
An autopsy is being conducted to determine the cause of death.
Swift was a member of Fort Riley’s “Devil Brigade” and has been deployed to South Korea, Afghanistan and Germany.
According to a news release, Swift was from Charlotte, Michigan. He joined the Army in 2006 and arrived at Fort Riley in November 2013.
Swift is the fifth Fort Riley soldier to die under questionable circumstances since late July.
On July 31, 30-year-old Alejandro Johnathan Franquiz was found dead in a car along the side of I-70 in Geary County. It was later revealed he died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
