A U.S. Navy sailor has been found dead in a train station in Japan.
Petty Officer 2nd Class Samuel Lewis Stiles was discovered on Oct. 28 on the platform in Haiki Station in Nagasaki Prefecture. The sailor was found surrounded by seven or eight alcoholic drink cans and supposedly suffered a head injury.
Stiles death, which is currently being investigated, comes at a delicate time for the U.S. military in Japan, as two U.S. sailors were recently arrested on accusations of rape.
This particular case angered Japanese officials and led the U.S. military to imposing a curfew on their troops in Japan. The curfew restricts military personnel to bases, personal homes or hotels between 11 p.m. and 5 a.m.
The time that Stiles’ was found, around 5 a.m., suggests that he may have been breaking curfew.
