A Fort Sill soldier whose body was discovered along a road at the post has been identified as an Army officer from Kansas.
Fort Sill officials say 1st Lt. Jeremy Andrew Clawson was found
dead Tuesday after someone called 911 to report a body near one of
the post's firing ranges.
The 36-year-old was activated from the Kansas Army National
Guard in December 2008 and arrived at Fort Sill in January. He was
assigned to 2nd Battalion, 289th Field Artillery Regiment.
Fort Sill spokeswoman Emily Kelley says Clawson's death is being
investigated by the post's Criminal Investigation Division, but
declined to elaborate.
Clawson enlisted in the Army in October 1990 and was
commissioned as an officer in October 2006.
Clawson was the editor of the Barton County Community College news paper that blew the whistle on the college’s Athletic Department scandals which led to several resignations, firings and prosecutions.
