By  | 

A California soldier who had served in Afghanistan was found dead Friday morning in his barracks room at Fort Rucker, but officials said the cause of his death is still being investigated.

20-year-old Army Specialist Pedro A. Consolacion of Mira Loma, California, was an air traffic control equipment repairer assigned to F Company of the 58th Aviation Regiment at the Air Traffic Services Command at Fort Rucker.

Soldiers searched for Consolacion after he didn't arrive for physical training. They discovered his body in his room at about 6:30 AM.

An autopsy was completed Saturday, but Army officials said it could take a week for toxicology tests to determine the cause of death.

He was assigned to F Company in July 2002.

A memorial service is planned for February 13th at the Fort Rucker chapel.
