FORT DRUM — Army investigators have determined that the December death of a soldier on post was a suicide through an overdose of prescription medication.

Sgt. Carl E. Brock, a 28-year-old communications transmission systems operator with the 2nd Brigade Special Troops Battalion, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, died Dec. 17 at an on-post residence run by Fort Drum Mountain Community Homes. Sgt. Brock was from Claremore, Okla.

Investigators said they found no evidence of foul play.

In an email, Christopher P. Grey, Army Criminal Investigation Command spokesman, said its investigation included a death scene examination, witness interviews, records reviews and a forensic examination of seized evidence.

The Jefferson County medical examiner’s office completed the autopsy.
