Army: Policies broken in slain soldier's disappearance
Fort Bragg, N.C. — Three non-commissioned officers have been reprimanded for not following policies and procedures to keep tabs on a new Fort Bragg soldier who later was found dead, the Army said Thursday.
The body of Spc. Megan Touma, 23, was found June 21 in a room at the Fairfield Inn near Cross Creek Mall. She had been assigned to Fort Bragg nine days earlier.
Army investigators said that timeline means the NCOs' actions in failing to account for her whereabouts played no role in her death.
"The sequence of events and subsequent errors on the side of 19th Replacement could not have prevented her death, but it would have been alerted to her issue much sooner. (The company) is continuing to improve operations in order to prevent these errors in the future," the Army said in a statement.

From November 2010:
A Fort Bragg soldier was sentenced Tuesday to at least 16 years in prison after he pleaded guilty to killing a pregnant comrade more than two years ago.
Sgt. Edgar Patino, 29, of Hope Mills, pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in the death of Spc. Megan Touma. He had originally been charged with first-degree murder in the case.
