“In August of 2007, Kamisha Block was killed by friendly fire while serving in Iraq – or that was what her family was told. Her family uncovered several lies by the U.S. Army and ultimately learned that Kamisha was murdered. Why did the military lie to the Block family? This is a story about domestic abuse, murder, a military cover-up, and the relentless pursuit of justice by the Block family.” –Kamisha Block, Murderific True Crime Podcast (December 8, 2019)

UPDATE: Army reopens case of 2007 murder-suicide that was originally called ‘friendly fire’ (Stars and Stripes, April 19, 2019)

“In 2007, Kamisha Block was one of a nearly 900 soldiers killed in Iraq. But Kamisha was not killed in combat. Her family was told Kamisha’s death was an accident; she was a casualty of friendly fire. But Kamisha’s death was much darker than that and has forced us to ask: could it have been prevented?” –Kamisha Block, Crimelines True Crime Podcast (October 20, 2019)

Army Spc. Megan Touma Found Murdered in Hotel Room; Edgar Patino Pleaded Guilty to 2nd Degree Murder, Given 16-20 Year Sentence (June 21, 2008)

Megan Touma

Spc. Megan Touma, U.S. Army

Army Spc. Megan Touma, 23, and her unborn son were murdered on June 21, 2008. Megan was found dead in a hotel room a few days later. After a homicide investigation was initiated, investigators learned Touma had a forbidden relationship with fellow Army soldier Edgar Patino when she was stationed in Germany. Patino gave her an engagement ring and asked her to marry him; she did not know that he was married. Shortly after Patino left Germany, Megan learned that she was pregnant. She chose to transfer to Fort Bragg, North Carolina so she could be with Edgar Patino. According to Patino, he stopped by Megan’s hotel room to end the relationship. They apparently argued and in a fit of rage Patino strangled her to death. Megan was 7 months pregnant when Patino murdered her. On November 2, 2010 Edgar Patino pleaded guilty to second degree murder and was sentenced to 16-20 years in prison.
