The Marine Corps is investigating the death of an Alabama Marine that occurred during training for a deployment to Iraq.
Officials say Private First Class Joshua A. Bailey of Vinemont (Cullman County) died Wednesday morning. He was a mechanic. Details of his death were being investigated and a Marine spokesman says no other information was immediately available. But Bailey's family says they were told he was run over while he slept. Diane Beesley, a cousin, said the family didn't know many details. She says Bailey's mother told her that the Marines say they don't know if it was a truck, a tank or another type of vehicle.
