Kentucky Soldier Stopped in Georgia Chase Dies

Fort Campbell officials say a soldier involved in a chase by Georgia State Police after his wife was found dead has also died of a gunshot wound.  The wound was apparently self-inflicted during the pursuit.  Authorities say 22-year-old Specialist Rico Rawls Jr. died at about 2 Monday afternoon.  Military police responding to an alleged domestic dispute in housing at the post found Jessica Rawls dead from what appeared to be a gunshot wound late last week. Her death remains under investigation.  Rawls was assigned to 5th Special Forces Group and had been at Fort Campbell since January 2010.
