Las Vegas Review-Journal (Sunday) - - NATION -

The com­man­der of U.S. Naval Forces Cen­tral Com­mand and the U.S. Fifth Fleet has been found dead in his res­i­dence in Bahrain.

Chief of Naval Op­er­a­tions Adm. John Richard­son said Vice Adm. Scott Stear­ney was found dead Satur­day.

The Naval Crim­i­nal In­ves­tiga­tive Ser­vice and the Bahraini Min­istry of In­te­rior are in­ves­ti­gat­ing the death, but foul play is not sus­pected, Richard­son said.

Rear Adm. Paul Sch­lise, the deputy com­man­der of the Fifth Fleet, has taken over Stear­ney’s du­ties.

The Fifth Fleet in­cludes the Ara­bian Gulf, the Gulf of Oman, the Gulf of Aden, the Red Sea and the Ara­bian Sea.
