    Fort Riley soldier who was reported missing Wednesday arrested on warrant after being found ‘safe’

    http://cjonline.com/news/local/crime...esday-arrested

    I am confused by the article as to whether there was a warrant to just get him found or another reason. ?

    Fort Riley solider arrested months before death

    Staff Sgt. Garett Michael Swift, 37, went missing in April. Fort Riley officials asked for help in locating Swift and a warrant was issued for his arrest. He was arrested a short time later and was quickly released. KSNT News reached out to Fort Riley officials several times to ask why there was a warrant for his arrest at that time and they would not respond.

    Swift, a First Infantry Division soldier, was found dead Monday. Junction City Police and Fort Riley detectives are investigating his death.

    Article says he is the 6th Fort Riley solider to die in the past two months.

    Something seems to be going on within that base.

    I was thinking that as well. These deaths could all be suicides, but something is not right. And makes me think the first time Garett went AWOL he might have been contemplating suicide or hiding from someone. Our military deserve better mental health care after all they go through.
