CLARKSVILLE, Tenn (AP) — A Fort Campbell soldier has turned his lifelong passion for finding military artifacts into a mission to discover what happened to a young World War II pilot who had been missing since 1945.
Sgt. First Class Danny Keay (KAY), who is serving with the 101st Airborne Division, grew up in Germany and has worked for years uncovering war crash sites. He has helped recover the remains of eight service members missing in action, including an American fighter pilot found in 2005.
WMOT News has learned today that court cases will move ahead against two Ft. Campbell soldiers.
Within the past hour, Ft. Campbell announced in a press release that the Army will court martial Sgt. Brent Burke for the murder of two Kentucky women in 2007. A trial date for early February has been set.
Burke faces court martial for the slayings of his estranged wife and her former mother-in-law. Efforts to try Burke, a military policeman at Fort Campbell, in a Kentucky civilian court for the shooting deaths ended in two hung juries and two mistrials.
