Police investigate death of pregnant soldier

A pregnant soldier from Kentucky is found dead in North Carolina, and now police are looking for answers.

Army Specialist Megan Touma was found dead in a motel in Fayetteville, North Carolina on Saturday. Police are calling her death suspicious.

Touma, a dental specialist, was born in Seoul, South Korea, but her hometown was Cold Spring, Kentucky.

Her former high school principal remembers Touma as someone who was always interested in the military.  Anthony Strong says, "Anytime you deal with the loss of a student or staff member, it's traumatic because it starts to bring back memories of former classes and what has happened."

Authorities say they don't know how she died, but say she was seven months pregnant.

There will be a private memorial service for Touma Friday.  She is the second pregnant soldier to die in North Carolina this year.
