Body Of KY Based Soldier Returned To Hometown

The body of a Ft. Campbell soldier, killed in Iraq, is back in his home town.

Hundreds lined the streets of Woodford County, Illinois to pay tribute to Private First Class Phillip Pannier. He was killed last week during a firefight with insurgents.

The army is investigating the possibility Pannier and two other Ft. Campbell soldiers were killed by friendly fire in that battle.

Pannier's funeral is set for Friday.
