The investigation into the death of a Taylor Marine is raising eyebrows and warranting calls of possible foul play.

As a result, three commanding officers have now been relieved of duty.

On Wednesday, June 8, Raheel Siddiqui’s parents met with military investigators and got some troubling answers about their son’s death.

Siddiqui’s parents believe he might have been victimized because he was a Muslim American.

Raheel was allegedly denied medical attention and rest when he became sick. His death was ultimately caused by a 40-foot-fall from a barracks stairwell.
