Summary:

The Los Angeles Times used details in the investigative report, obtained through FOIA, to profile the death of one of 168 Marines ruled suicides and illustrate that signs of possible suicide are subtle and often missed by colleagues and friends. The investigation found no clear signs of suicidal intentions before the death, but suggested some subtler cues that other soldiers had noticed.
