Foul play is suspected in two deaths discovered on Wednesday at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, one of the largest military installations in the world where Army servicemembers train and deploy. Their deaths are the fourth and fifth to have occurred on or near the base this year.

The two people discovered on Wednesday are 44-year-old Master Sergeant William J. Lavigne II, who was assigned to Headquarters and Headquarters Company and U.S. Army Special Operations Command, and 37-year-old Army veteran Timothy Dumas. Their bodies were found Wednesday afternoon in a training area with no weapon found at the scene, according to ABC 11 WTVD reporter Akilah Davis.

The two were reportedly not killed during a military training exercise, USA Today reports. The U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command has said its investigation is ongoing.

Defense officials have not yet released any more information.

The roughly 172,000 acres base near Fayetteville, North Carolina contains approximately 57,000 military personnel, 11,000 civilian employees and 23,000 family members, according to the Associated Press.
