Update on deceased individual found on Fort Bragg

During a routine patrol on the morning of Nov. 21, Fort Bragg Military Police discovered a burned-out vehicle adjacent to Range 74 on a section of road accessible to the public. The Army Criminal Investigation Division’s Carolinas Field Office on Fort Bragg, N.C., was notified and began an investigation.

It appears the vehicle struck an embankment and caught fire sometime during the previous evening. Unfortunately, the driver, Ronald A. Farrell, 70, of Fayetteville, N.C., died as a result of the accident. At this point in the investigation there are no signs of foul play. Mr. Farrell served in the North Carolina National Guard from 1975 to 1983. Army CID appreciates the support of the Fayetteville Police Department for their assistance in this investigation.

As the investigation continues, we extend our condolences to Mr. Farrell’s family. To protect the integrity of the ongoing investigation, Army CID will not release any further information at this time.
