Army Criminal Investigation Command looked into the case for several months before passing it off to the Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS).
Two members of SEAL Team Six are reportedly being investigated over the suspicious death of an Army Green Beret officer who was allegedly found strangled in Mali in June, according to United States media. A military medical examiner ruled to be a homicide, the New York Times reported. At first, the SEALs were merely "witnesses", but investigators soon changed that status to "persons of interest". A third official with knowledge of the investigation confirmed it centers on two Navy SEALs.
NCIS did not divulge details of the investigation or provide theories on why Melgar was killed.

According to CBS News, the two SEALs under investigation were reportedly involved in an altercation with Melgar. The room where Melgar was found resembled that of a bomb going off inside.
"NCIS does not discuss the details of ongoing investigations", Ed Buice, the agency's spokesman, told the Times in an email.
Melgar was a member of the 3rd Special Forces Group, which is the primary unit responsible for Army special operations in northwest Africa, including Mali and Niger.
The 34-year-old Melgar had served through two Afghanistan tours before being deployed to Mali to assist with counterterrorism missions.
