A Soldier's Mysterious Death in Afghanistan

Hosted by

Ciara Durkin served in a finance unit in Afghanistan. Her family was first told she died "in action." Now the Army says she was killed by a single gunshot near a church. Sometime before she was killed, the Massachusetts National Guardswoman told her family that if anything happened to her, they should press for an investigation. Now, both Massachusetts Senators John Kerry and Ted Kennedy are demanding to know what happened, and an Army liaison has been with the family every day. Noah Bierman reports for the Boston Globe.
