CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. — A 19-year-old found dead in his Camp Pendleton barracks had been beaten to death by a fellow Marine, investigators say.

Lance Cpl. Mario Arias Jr., from Canoga Park, Calif., was attacked at the San Diego County base over the weekend, authorities said.

The air crew trainee, from Marine Light Attack Helicopter Training Squadron 303, Marine Aircraft Group 39, 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing, enlisted in August 2010.

The Naval Criminal Investigation Service said the suspect is being treated in a hospital for "significant injuries" sustained when he jumped from a third-floor balcony.

Ed Buice, spokesman for NCIS at its headquaters in Quantico, Va., told msnbc.com that neither the suspect's identity nor the hospital where he is being treated would be released until charges had been brought.

Just hoping this is not somehow related to the sexual orientation of either or both Marines.

Looks like out suspect just signed up for a Life Long Enlistment in our military and will be stationed at Ft. Levenworth.

So...let me see if I have this right.

A guy is beat to death...and the perp jumps out a 3 story window?

Quite a bit of drama here.....

Seems gay.

More likely an Ego clash between a wanna be alpha and another devil dog who wouldn’t roll over for anyone without the stripes to merit such.

Or over women.

If that is the case, you’ll hear more of these type of stories.

Pandora’s gay box is blown wide open.

Very unusual event. In my 21 years in the Corps I never heard of a case like this happening. Fist fights in the barracks, sure, usually over women with alcohol and ego mixed in.

But to the death? Unusual. In spite of what Hollywood would try to tell you.

This was so violent that it may well have involved 2 sodomites - one of whom felt “rejected” or jealous...

You would think someone would have heard something and try to stop it?

If I were a betting man I would bet on that.

We will see I suppose.

Very common in the Army, in Germany due to drug deals, mostly heroin, during the '70s when I was enlisted as a medic, and psych specialist.

There was a soldier found floating in the river with a 2x4 thru his sleaves.

A captain was locked in a locker and tossed out a third story window. He wasn't dead after the first drop, so they took him for a second drop.

We knew of heroin dealers who were Viet Nam vets. They brought home a very dark side of that war.

No, I believe it is in other capable hands.
