Sgt. Alex Mathew Dean Taylor, 23, was found unresponsive Wednesday at his place of duty at Fort Hood, Texas, officials announced Thursday. 

Taylor's death is under investigation by special agents from Army Criminal Investigation Command, according to Chris Grey, chief of public affairs for the command, which is also known as CID.

Taylor was discovered in one of his assigned unit's work-related buildings, Grey told Army Times. 

"At this point in the investigative process, we do not suspect foul play but have not completely ruled it out while we conduct a complete and thorough death investigation," Grey told Army Times on Thursday. "Due to the ongoing investigation, we will not be releasing any further details at this time to protect the integrity of the investigative process."
 
Taylor had been assigned to the 15th Military Intelligence Battalion at Fort Hood since July 2016. He entered active-duty service in March 2012 as an aviation operations specialist.

Taylor's awards include the Army Commendation Medal, Army Good Conduct Medal, National Defense Service Medal, Noncommissioned Officer Professional Development Ribbon, Aviation Badge, Air Assault Badge  and Army Service Ribbon.
