One of the marines in the video where troops appear to be urinating on Taliban corpses in Afhganistan was the unit's leader, according to McClatchy Newspapers.
The company which runs The News & Observer was told by officials that the unit had disciplinary problems while at Camp Lejeune, before it deployed overseas.
The four marines in the video, as well as the person recording the video have been identified as members of a sniper squad from the 3rd Battalion, 2nd Marines.
The investigation is still ongoing.
