COLORADO SPRINGS, COLO. — The U.S. Army says someone in Colorado Springs may have information that could help solve the 2009 murder of a soldier in Afghanistan.
The Army’s Criminal investigation Command is offering a $25,000 reward for information in the death of Sgt. Anton Phillips, who was assigned to a Germany-based maintenance company. Phillips was found stabbed to death at a base in Mehtar Lam, Afghanistan, a farming area east of Kabul.
According to the Colorado Springs Gazette, the Army won’t say why Colorado Springs is the focus of its investigation, but Phillips was serving at the base alongside soldiers from Fort Carson’s 4th Brigade Combat Team.
