CASE DROPPED, NO Charges, NO Court-Martial. Cause of death found to be based on unknown causes.
September 13, 2019, U.S. v. E-4, United States Army, Fort Campbell, Kentucky. Specialist and his wife are suspected of the assault and battery and death of their infant child. CID aggressively interrogates both the Specialist and wife separately, accusing them of having committed the purported injuries that could have caused injuries which the Government asserted resulted in the death of the child. Specialist retains GLG Law to represent them. Because the wife was a civilian, Gapasin contacts the Special Assistant United States Attorney (SAUSA) who is JAG and stationed on Fort Campbell. Gapasin and the SAUSA confer about the case and Gapasin points out that the injuries you would expect to see from a “battered baby” or “shaken baby” are simply nonexistent in the x-rays and other medical tests conducted. CID even conducts toxicology tests to determine whether or not injuries could have been inflicted in a manner other than from shaking or blunt force. RESULT: CASE DROPPED, NO Charges, NO Court-Martial. Cause of death found to be based on unknown causes.
