GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - Rep. Greg Murphy says Camp Lejeune needs to be transparent with the public after three children were announced to have been found dead on the base Wednesday.

Marines would not say how old the children were or how they died, but they did say the children were not shot.

“I think transparency is never a bad thing. As facts come out we just need to know,” Murphy said Thursday.

The Naval Criminal Investigative Service is investigating the children’s deaths, which Camp Lejeune says occurred on April 16th at two separate occasions.

WITN made several requests for more details about the time, location, and ages of the children who died at the base, but Camp Lejeune has not given any updates.
