The body that was discovered on Fort Campbell Thursday night has been confirmed to be Specialist Brandon Bertolo, who was reported missing earlier this week.
Family members of the local soldier are asking for prayers to deal with the difficult situation after learning their loved as passed away.
Fort Campbell officials have not released any further information at this time.
As previously reported, Fort Campbell Criminal Investigation Detachment authorities say Specialist Bertolo came under investigation this past week on an unrelated incident.
Post officials say Bertolo, who was assigned to the 2nd Brigade Combat Team, was released back to his brigade on Friday, July 12th and was ordered to report to morning formation on Monday, July 15th, but failed to do so.
Post officials say the soldier was not considered missing, but classified as absent without leave.
