Suspect in Afghan massacre identified
Staff sergeant is married and has two children
His identity is as shadowed now as the night the Army says he crept into a pair of slumbering Afghan villages and slaughtered 16 civilians whose safety he was charged to protect. Five days after the massacre a portrait of the suspect, whose name is still secret, is beginning to emerge. He’s a 38-year-old staff sergeant, husband, father of two young children, and a veteran who was in the midst of his fourth tour in a war zone.
