Soldier's wife dies on Ky. military post


FORT CAMPBELL, Ky. (AP) -- Military officials are investigating the death of the wife of a U.S. Army soldier on the Fort Campbell post this weekend.

According to a news release on Monday, Fort Campbell police and emergency workers responded to a 911 call on Sunday afternoon and pronounced 21-year-old Linzi R. Jenks dead in her home on the post on the Tennessee-Kentucky state line.

Fort Campbell spokesman Rick Rzepka said the cause of death is under investigation by special agents with the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command. A spokesman for Army Criminal Investigation also declined to provide details while the investigation was ongoing.

Rzepka said he could not release the name of the soldier Jenks is married to but said he is an enlisted soldier assigned to the rear detachment of the 4th Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division. Rzepka said Jenks has two children.
