Murder in the Military
Over Memorial Day weekend 2020, SPC Enrique Roman-Martinez and seven other paratroopers from his battalion, break Fort Bragg’s Covid restrictions and go camping on North Carolina’s Cape Lookout National Seashore. Enrique disappears the first night, leaving behind his glasses, cell phone, and wallet, but his companions don’t report him missing until 19 hours later, saying they have spent the entire day searching for him. A week later, the 21-year-old soldier’s head washes up on the beach of a nearby island, with marks indicating it has been severed from his body with a sharp, cutting instrument. What happened to Enrique remains a mystery, and his family and loved ones are left searching for answers to questions about how Enrique died and who killed him.
Enrique Roman-Martinez was killed on or around May 22nd 2020 while camping on North Carolina’s Cape Lookout National Seashore. The army is now offering its largest reward — $50,000 — for any information leading to the arrest of the person or persons responsible for Enrique’s death. If you have any information regarding this case, please contact the army CID special agents at 910-396-8777, or go to unsolved.com.SUBMIT A TIP
