US Military spokesman Major General William Caldwell confirmed that the two bodies found earlier appear to be those of the two missing soldiers.
At a press conference in Baghdad, U.S. military spokesman Maj. Gen. William Caldwell confirmed that the remains, found late Monday by U.S. troops, were believed to be those of Pfc. Kristian Menchaca, 23, of Houston, and Pfc. Thomas L. Tucker, 25, of Madras, Ore.
Caldwell said the cause of death was "undeterminable" and that DNA tests would be conducted to verify the identities.
My heart goes out to the two families. I would be nice if the media would leave them alone right now, too. Let them get through this ordeal without making it worse for them, please.
