Fort Wood Officials Identify Two Soldiers Found Dead Over the Weekend

Fort Leonard Wood apparently has identified the two soldiers who died over the weekend–one on Skyview Drive in Pulaski County and the other in South Carolina.
The body of Corporal Alma Riveraurquiza was discovered Sunday afternoon in an upstairs bedroom of a house in the Hunter’s Point area by Pulaski County deputies and Fort Wood Criminal Investigation Division officials conducting a wellness check. An investigation led officials to identify a person of interest, who was reported later in the day to have been found deceased in South Carolina. He has been identified as Corporal Deshon Holloway.
Both soldiers worked at the General Leonard Wood Army Community Hospital at Fort Wood. Their names were revealed in two postings by GLWACH officials on the Fort Leonard Wood Facebook site.
Next of kin have been notified. The Fort Wood Criminal Investigation Division is conducting the official investigation.
