The Army says the investigation into the death of a U.S. Army captain in Afghanistan continues -- but that it can say definitively that Capt. Bruce Clark was not shot.
Clark collapsed last week while speaking to his wife by way of a Skype video chat from his base in Afghanistan. His wife has suggested that he was shot. She said she could see a hole in the closet behind him that she believed was a bullet hole.
But an Army spokesman says no bullet wound was found, and no trauma -- except that Clark's nose was possibly broken when he fell forward onto his desk. He says foul play isn't suspected, but that investigators will "consider all available evidence."
A spokesman for the Armed Forces medical examiner says an autopsy was done Friday, but that it could take several weeks to get results of toxicology and tissue testing.
A brother-in-law who has been acting as the family's spokesman said today that the family hadn't been officially informed by the Army that a bullet wound had not been found.
