    Looking at the comments, some have suggested that he probably had a stroke or heart attack based on the wording from his wife - "Hoping for a miracle." If there was any combat, his wife probably would have indicated. Still very sad though.

    His wife says she slumped forward suddenly, and she saw a bullet hole in the closet behind him.

    Probably the military has a good idea as to what could or did happen, but so far they are sticking with the "he died of natural causes" story.

    "whole story has a whiff about it to me, but i'm a natural cynic."

    that is self preservation in this day and time and is called gut instinct. oprah called it that "uh oh" feeling, or it maybe a sixth sense. when i feel that something just doesn't seem right, it usually isn't. of course sometimes i meet people and feel the hair on the back of my neck rise cause they are just creepy eery somehow. like what they are saying doesn't match what they are doing type thing. i avoid them because something is not right with them.
