2 teen girls in Wash. Army barracks; 1 dead

FORT LEWIS, Wash. (AP) - Authorities have questioned a soldier at Fort Lewis in Washington state after a 16-year-old girl was found dead in a barracks.

Another teenage girl was discovered unconscious. She's reported in stable condition.

Emergency personnel on the base responded to a 911 call early Sunday morning. The base issued a statement about the death about 36 hours later.

The Army is investigating what the girls were doing in the barracks and whether drugs or alcohol were involved. A Fort Lewis spokesman says results of an autopsy on the dead girl might not be available for a week.

The spokesman says the soldier who has been questioned is "allegedly acquainted with the two girls." No arrests have been made.
