It looks like we will never know for sure unless the truth happens to corraspond with some need that can be gained by telling the truth.

...and remember we do have a nationwide flu outbreak right now......
KILLEEN (January 13, 2015) A preliminary field test shows that a soldier home on leave from duty in West Africa who was found dead in the front yard of a residence Tuesday morning does not have the Ebola virus, Fort Hood said late Tuesday afternoon.
“Carl R. Darnall Medical Center medical officials confirmed at 4:15 p.m. Jan. 13 that the initial screening BioFire Assay test results are negative for the presence of the Ebola virus disease,” the post said in a brief update.
A more conclusive test required by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is underway, the post said.

From the article:
According to a release from Fort Hood, the soldier recently returned on emergency leave and was under established guidelines to self-monitor himself twice-a-day and report his status to medical officials.
What was the emergency leave? Was he ill or was it something else?
Seems if he was ill, they would have placed him in the hospital.
Killeen Daily reporting same story.
Emergency leave usually is due to a personal problem, like death in the family or divorce or severe problems with the kids, etc. If there was a medical problem or psychiatric problem, he would have gone to the hospital, so you are correct.
I'd guess suicide due to some sort of personal problem at first glance.

They obviously know something that they aren`t telling us,why else would they send a hazmat unit?
if you see someone lying in their yard you don`t automatically assume they are dead or that they died from something that requires hazmat. people would usually call an ambulance,even if the person died from Ebola the EMT`s won`t know that so they wouldn`t call hazmat.

There were people during the outbreaks of plague that could get up in the morning apparently healthy and keel over dead in a few hours or so.
Sometimes, a disease can overtake you that suddenly depending on its route of infection.

Not Ebola, maybe he partied it up a little too much...someone mentioned that he was found in vomit. I still find it suspicious that he died the same day this was posted:
I don't know much about Motherboard. Anyone?
