Melgar was discovered dead in embassy housing in Mali in June, and his superiors immediately believed there to be foul play at work, which led investigators to subsequently declare the death a homicide by strangulation, The New York Times reports.

Two members of SEAL Team 6 are "being looked at" in the death in Mali of a Fort Bragg-based Army Green Beret, CBS News confirms.

Military officials told CNN that a military examiner ruled Melgar's death while on assignment in the African nation of Mali as a homicide. At the time of his death, the Green Beret officer was sharing an apartment with other special force members.

Four U.S. soldiers who were killed in Niger in October were also part of the same group.

The investigation was later taken over by Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) on September 25. A military spokesman could not release additional information except that the incident is still under investigation.

The second is the environment: I was very well received by my companions. "I'm talking only about the traffic & lots of people". I knew Conte and I had no problems fitting into his ideas of football. "Every time I spoke to him he said he's happy".

According to CBS News, the two SEALs under investigation were reportedly involved in an altercation with Melgar.

Melgar was a veteran of two deployments to Afghanistan.

The cause is listed as homicide, two USA military officials familiar with the case told The Washington Post on Sunday, Oct. 29.

Like in the case of Niger, special operators from the Army and Navy are deployed to Mali to assist local forces with training and counterterrorism projects. Four Americans and four Nigeriens were killed in the attack, turning the spotlight on Washington's military operations in Africa where over 6,000 USA troops are now stationed.
