I am not going to say where i am from, or i do be i am sure a few of you will be able to analysis all of that within my message here.
I have known Shae Holton for a year and a half and grew very close to him. I want to take this time to clarify things for everyone so that you may
understand what is going n and to help with some of your questions. Shane Holton was just promoted on the 1 of NOV and his girlfriend left Alaska on
the 11th of this month. He was extremely happy, did not have a drinking or drug problem. Nor did he ever show any kind of signs of possible suicide or
thoughts/wants to commit suicide. Although no reports on what exactly happened have been released yet my thought on the whole thing from talking to
the people who found the body and talking to CID is that is was a natural death. I know he joked round about having some kind of heart issue. If that
is the case then that would have been something that he lied about when he joined the army.
Also to clarify why it took so long to find his body was that the road conditions were very bad and no one was able to dive on the roads for two days
straights. His leadership was aware that he had not been in contact for several days. But also knew that he just got off of pass, plus not being at
work or around the others at work, i am sure things just slipped their minds. We are all human and we all know how we can push things aside,
especially when we don't believe something to be a big deal. But in his case it was.
I am at no reason making excuses for anyone as would be the first person to point out my faults or the faults of any report. But i hope this answers
some questions of yours.
Eerie, I was stationed at Ft. wainwright myself, 91-96, saw a lot of people affected by SAD, myself included. You don't realize what it is unless
someone points it out to you. It sneaks up on you real fast.
The chain of command would be notified first, that's what the CQ would do, after they are called the EMTs are called, esp if it's an obvious death.
My deepest condolences on the loss of your friend!
Alaska is a weird place IMO and I had the opportunity to read some threads on Alaskan weirdness such as aliens bases, MIA military teams and bigfoot
sightings and I just wonder could something like that be involved here?
However at face value and with the current information to hand it seems that it may be no more than an unfortunate tragedy.
I look forward to this thread revealing further information that I hope sheds more light on what exactly happened to this young man in the service of
