The Army veteran who fought alongside rebels in Syria, only to be later accused of joining Al Qaeda-linked terrorists by the U.S., has died in Arizona of unknown causes, his family told ABC News.
Eric Harroun, 32, succumbed to an "accidental overdose" according to his sister, but an official cause had not yet been released.

"A former soldier who was discharged after a vehicle accident, Harroun converted to Islam while attending community college in Tucson."
