Shannon Lynch, a spokeswoman for the Womack Army Medical Center at Fort Bragg, did not disclose Carreiro’s cause of death and said the Army’s Criminal Investigative Command is investigating the incident, as it does with all deaths on Army installations.
WESTPORT — Luke Carreiro, a Westport High School graduate who served his country as an Army soldier in Iraq and died last week in North Carolina, is being remembered as a great teammate, a good soldier and a loving son.
“He was a good boy. He never had a bad word to say about anyone. He helped everybody who needed it,” said his mother, Marie Carreiro, of Westport. Marie Carreiro said her son was found unresponsive last week at Fort Bragg, where Luke, 26, was stationed as a U.S. Army mental health specialist.

The military said he died last Wednesday but has not released a cause of death. Marie Carreiro said the family has been told that they might not know the cause of death for another six to seven months. read more here
