FBI joins investigation into bodies found on Fort Bragg

The FBI announced Tuesday that it is joining with the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command in seeking information from the public in connection with two bodies being found on Fort Bragg last year.

A news release from the FBI said investigators are looking to create a timeline of the locations and activities of Timothy Dumas Sr., 44, and Master Sgt. William Lavigne III, 37, on Dec. 1-2. A statement from the North Carolina post said the bodies were found in a training area and that their deaths were not related to official unit training.

According to the news release, a gray 2016 Chevrolet Colorado pickup truck belonging to Lavigne was found at the crime scene near Manchester Road in Cumberland County. A dark colored 2015 Dodge Ram pick-up truck belonging to Dumas was found abandoned at another location, the news release said.

Fort Bragg, covering nearly 172,000 acres, is one of the world’s largest military complexes, according to its website. It has approximately 57,000 military personnel, 11,000 civilian employees and 23,000 family members.
