A US Army soldier in Italy was found dead in his barracks room on Sunday Morning.

The 19-year-old soldier was assigned to the 173rd Airborne Brigade, according to a local Italian newspaper.

Officials declined to release any information about the deceased soldier to Stars and Stripes, “saying that they were prevented from doing so until 24 hours after next of kin had been notified and that such notification had not been completed.”

Local officials investigating said there was a presence of drugs and alcohol in the barracks room.

According to Stripes, the soldier is the third in less than a year to be found “lifeless” in barracks rooms on Caserma Ederle- the U.S. military complex in Vicenza, Italy.

Army officials have offered little information about those deaths as well.
