Three US Marine Corps lance corporals have been found dead in a car parked outside a convenience store near the Camp Lejeune military base in North Carolina.

The bodies were discovered on Sunday morning at a Speedway filling station in Hampstead, North Carolina, the Pender County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement on Tuesday. Deputies encountered their vehicle while investigating a report of a missing person.

Neither law enforcement officials nor the Marine Corps disclosed any information on a possible cause of death. The case is reportedly being investigated by the Sheriff’s Office, with assistance from the Naval Criminal Investigative Service.

The deceased Marines were identified as 19-year-old Tanner Kaltenberg of Madison, Wisconsin; Merax Dockery, 23, from Pottawatomie, Oklahoma; and Naples, Florida native Ivan Garcia, also 23. All three lance corporals were motor vehicle operators, driving various tactical vehicles for the 2nd Marine Logistics Group at Camp Lejeune.

Their regimental commander, Brigadier General Michael McWilliams, issued a statement extending condolences to family members and friends of the deceased Marines. “Our focus is on providing the necessary resources and support to those impacted by their tragic loss as they navigate this extremely difficult time,” he said.

Foul play reportedly isn’t suspected in the case. “There does not appear to have ever been any threat to members of the community,” the Sheriff’s Office said.

The incident comes less than one month after four people, including three Marines from Southern California’s Camp Pendleton, were killed in a fiery one-vehicle car crash in Los Angeles County.

  1. Veterans are committing suicide in the parking lots of the department of Veterans Affairs Hospitals and Clinics as well. Very high rate…and in the Active Duty Forces, it’s even worse!
    The DVA also has armed DVA Police (another Police State Alphabet Agency…) on the Federal Properties of those hospitals and clinics. This was allegedly formed-up due to the Veterans getting pissed off at the delays in their Disability Compensation (tax-free) claims, (average wait time; 7 years…), and finding themselves on cancelled health care rosters for surgeries, counseling etc.
    If a Veteran confronts one of the useless and worthless minority admin clerks who treats the Veterans like crap when the Veteran appears at the TRIAGE Desk, or at an appointment desk, only to find their appointments cancelled, with no fore-warning, then once the Veteran reacts to the hostile, obnoxious and terrible treatment, then the Veteran is treated as a …(wait for it…wait for it…) TERRORIST and is then attacked, injured, tasered, pepper-sprayed by the DVA Police, IF the Veteran isn’t shot to death first!
    Sound familiar???
