Investigation into why Marine fell off building inconclusive, Corps discharges


Parris Island drill instructors boot camp

An investigation into how a US Marine recruit managed to fall from a first story building at Parris Island this summer has yielded little to no conclusive results, USMC sources say.

The unidentified recruit -who fell from a building on July 26– was released last week and given an administrative discharge from service on September 20.

Parris Island spokesman Capt. Adam Flores said the investigation ended on an “inconclusive” note around August 2.

The investigating officer determined that no personnel aboard the depot witnessed the recruit either jump or fall from the single-story building,” he said. “Thus, the investigating officer was unable to determine the specific cause of the recruit’s fall from the building.”

In addition to the lack of evidence concerning foul play, the recruit claimed he could not remember why he had fallen from the building.

According to Military.com, unnamed sources close to the incident claim the recruit jumped and landed on his head. If this is the case, the jump would be the third time in 16 months that a recruit had jumped off of a building at Parris Island.
