Vice Adm. Scott A. Stearney, commander of U.S. 5th Fleet, was found dead in his quarters in Bahrain on Saturday, according to a statement from Chief of Naval Operations Adm. John Richardson.
While an investigation is ongoing, the death of Stearney will almost certainly be ruled a suicide, a U.S. defense official told USNI News. An official determination on the cause of death is expected by mid-week, USNI News has learned.

Maybe I missed it, but dead of WHAT? Gunshot to the head, hanging, plastic bag over head, OD on sleeping pills, etc., etc.
If nothing obvious, at least they could say "No apparent signs of foul play."
First responders reported that he was Bahrain dead.
Or some other corruption.
Family keeps those 3-Star benefits instead of visiting him in Leavenworth.
