In 2004, eighteen months after his death, when his death in custody was brought to the attention of American headquarters, his death was attributed to a kidney infection. Later, an investigation determined that the account of death by natural causes was a fiction, the result of collusion among the GIs in the Special Forces unit whose custody he was in when he died. After a two-year investigation no one was held responsible for his death. However reprimands were filed in the dossiers of several GIs for the failure to report his death.
