February 19, 2009|Times Wire Reports

Army investigators believe the death of a 16-year-old civilian girl at a barracks at Ft. Lewis was possibly drug-related.

Chris Grey, a spokesman at the Criminal Investigation Command headquarters at Ft. Belvoir, Va., wouldn't specify what drug or drugs may have been involved.

Grey said the dead girl and another 16-year-old civilian girl who was found passed out early Sunday were both acquainted with a soldier in the barracks.
