Developing: Fort Stewart Soldier Killed In Afghanistan

Posted: Updated:
LAGRANGE, GA -

Our sister station WRBL in Columbus, GA reports a Fort Stewart Soldier has died in Afghanistan.  Stefan Smith was killed in an attack early Tuesday morning. He was stationed at Fort Stewart in Hinesville, but was serving overseas. Smith graduated from LaGrange High in Troup County in 2008, where he was a standout wrestler. Coach Scooter Weathers says Smith was growing into a special young man and has maintained a close relationship with him since high school. He says the husband and father of three loved his family and his country. Coach Weathers has been in contact with the family, who is on their way to Delaware to bring back Smith's remains.
