Death

The US Army's original official narrative claimed to his family that he was killed by enemy fire, but around a month later[1][2] they changed the story to say that he was shot by US forces in a friendly fire accident from a distance of about 10 yards.[3] Many commentators have suggested that this may in fact be another official lie hiding a more unpalatable truth.[4] Witnesses to the event were told not to speak to outsiders about what had happened.[1]
