Additional remains of Sgt. La David Johnson, one of four U.S. soldiers killed in a firefight with Islamic State-linked militants last month, have been found in Niger, the Pentagon said Tuesday.
A joint U.S.-Africa Command military investigation team discovered the remains Nov. 12 at the site where Johnson’s body was recovered following the Oct. 4 attack in the West African nation, the Pentagon said in a statement. The remains were later confirmed as those of Johnson, 25, a married father of two children.
Johnson’s widow, Myeshia Johnson, told ABC shortly after the incident, that officials prevented her from seeing her husband’s body.
