A Camp Lejeune Marine was found dead in a motel room.

20 year old William Tripp's body was found Sunday morning in Cary after a person inside a room at the Days Inn said they found the Texas man unresponsive.

Police don't know what caused his death and are investigating.

We found out Tripp pleaded guilty to marijuana possession in January, but was still on active duty.

The military says Private Tripp joined the Marines in October 2007.
