Cherry Point Marine Dies In "Non-Combat" Death

A Marine private from Connecticut has died at Cherry Point in what military officials say was a "non-combat" death.

Private Timothy Koundry Jr. died Sunday at the Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point. He was 22.

Marine officials would not say how Koundry died. The military defines a non-combat death as being by accident, homicide, negligence, illness or suicide. They said Koundry's death is under investigation by his command and the Naval Criminal Investigative Service.

Cherry Point said around 7:45 p.m. Koundry was found dead in his barracks room. Marines say emergency services were called and Koundry was pronounced dead at the scene.

Koundry served in the Marine Corps for one year and ten months as an Intermediate Aviation Ordnance Technician.

The family says the funeral will be private.
