Report: Murdered Lubbock Green Beret uncovered SEALs' cash scheme

Posted: Updated:

Five Special Operations personnel say two Navy SEALs killed a Green Beret from Lubbock after he discovered they'd been stealing federal money.

Army Staff Sgt. Logan Melgar died at a U.S. compound near the American Embassy in Mali.

A military examiner reports Melgar died from asphyxiation.

Naval investigators are looking into claims the two members from SEAL Team Six are responsible.

Two Special Forces sources report those operators were taking money from a fund used to pay informants.

They claim Melgar learned about the theft and refused to take a cut.

Sources say the operators got into a fight with Melgar, then he died.

The SEALs and another Green Beret took him to the hospital.

Melgar was part of the 3rd Special Forces group primarily responsible for special operations in northwest Africa including Mali and Niger.
