FORT KNOX, Ky. (AP) - Army officials say a body found on the Fort Knox Army post was a retired soldier who was working as a computer systems analyst at the installation.
Fort Knox officials told The News Enterprise of Elizabethtown on Wednesday that the man found in April was 47-year-old retired Sgt. 1st Class Reggie Gerard Epperson.
According to his obituary, he was working at the installation at the time of his death.
An investigation was launched by the Army Criminal Investigations Division after his body was found about 100 feet from the military post's boundary with Saunders Springs Nature Preserve - a 26-acre public forest in Radcliff.
Authorities said the cause of his death is still being investigated.
