12 Infants Die at Fort Bragg in 4 Years

Twelve babies have died within a period of four years at the Fort Bragg army base in North Carolina. Three of the deaths occurred in the same house (not in the same family). Officials are still baffled and no explanation has been identified.

Medical records have been reviewed and autopsies studied. Hundreds of environmental studies have been made which did not pinpoint any hazards. Many parents believe the drywall may be to blame, but this was ruled out as well.

Authorities are now testing to see if abnormal pesticide levels may have contributed to the deaths.
