BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) — Explosives experts had to dismantle three roadside bombs to reach the brutalized bodies of two missing U.S. soldiers, whose remains were found tied together with a bomb between one soldier’s legs, the U.S. military said.
In a statement that provided additional details of the killings, the military said the bodies of U.S. Army Pfc. Kristian Menchaca of Houston and Pfc. Thomas Tucker of Madras, Ore., were found at 7:50 p.m. on June 19 not far from where they were abducted when insurgents attacked their checkpoint.
The military said it waited until the next morning to recover the bodies because an Iraqi in the area had warned the area was booby-trapped….
A U.S. military official said last week that one and possibly both young men were tortured and beheaded.
