Ft. Stewart death investigation continues


It’s been one week since the wife of a deployed soldier was found dead in her home.

On July 10, military police found 24-year-old Abree Boykin dead on post.

Family members tell News 3 they called the police to check on her after not hearing from her for hours.

Army investigators do not believe this was a random crime and do not believe there is any danger to the community.

They released this statement Tuesday afternoon:

“Our investigation remains ongoing and I can assure you our special agents are working around the clock on this case and have made significant progress,” said Christopher Grey, spokesman for Army CID.  At this point in the investigation, we believe this was an isolated incident and the victim possibly knew her assailant. We have no reason or evidence to believe that the Fort Stewart community is at further risk related to this tragic death.”

Boykin’s family is still left with so many questions.

“I spoke with the investigator and he says they are getting close to finding out who was it that did it and what was it that happened. The investigator also says he does know what went on in that apartment,” her cousin Adrien Boykin told News 3, Sunday.

Police are looking for a vehicle whose driver may have information about the death.  The vehicle is a black 2018 Honda Accord with a Georgia license plate RLQ1762.

Special Agents from the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command are leading the investigation.
