FORT HUACHUCA -- A soldier from Oklahoma has been found dead in a medical barracks at Fort Huachuca.

Death under investigation

The body of Private Paul Muse, 22, was discovered Saturday morning in the Army post's Warriors in Transition Unit, which provides physical and mental health help for soldiers wounded in action and other troops recovering from medical conditions.

Muse, however, who enlisted in 2006, never went to war and was not being treated for battlefield injuries.

Officials say the death is under investigation, a process that may take several months.

Muse is the second soldier to have died at Fort Huachuca this year.
