Female Soldiers Dying Outside the Line of Fire


Edgar Patino is accused of killing Spc. Megan Lynn Touma. Megan, 23, was found dead in a hotel near Fort Bragg. Megan was seven-months pregnant at the time. She was a five-year veteran of the Army. She was stationed at Fort Bragg in North Carolina at the time of her death. Touma and Patino had previously been stationed together in Germany. Supposedly Patino proposed to Touma in Germany prior to Touma learning that Patino was still married. (This allegation remains unverified and should be considered a rumor at this point in time.)


Touma is the second female soldier from Fort Bragg to die suspiciously. Army 2nd Lt. Holley Wimunc was killed in early July. Her apartment was burned on July 10 and her body found nearby. Her husband, Marine Cpl. John Wimunc was charged with arson and first degree murder. Another Marine, Lance Cpl. Kyle Alden, was charged with arson and felony accessory after the fact to first-degree murder.


Keep in mind that all suspects are innocent unless otherwise proven guilty. Allegations are not necessarily facts. Stay tuned on these stories as they are subject to change.

These ladies were trained to fight the enemy but they didn't realize just how close that enemy was... Sheesh!

Can I just point out that the word is "dying"?
