Brandy Fonteneaux: Sister speaks out on Facebook.
A Houston soldier was found dead in her Colorado barracks Sunday morning, nude and stabbed to death.

The Army says Spc. Brandy Fonteneaux, 28, a food service specialist in the 4th Engineer Battalion at Fort Carson, had served in the Army for over two years.

"Special Agents from the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command are investigating the death as a homicide," the Army said. "Given the information and evidence developed to date by the CID investigators, officials do not believe there is any further threat to the Fort Carson community."

No further details were released, but a Colorado TV station did talk to the woman's family.

The victim's sister, Nkenge Fonteneaux, describes Brandy as outgoing, good-natured and passionate. She said the young woman had earned a degree in kinesiology at a university in Texas, before joining the Army three years ago.

According to Fonteneaux, "She joined the Army to see the world, to help people in need, and then this happens? This is just a tragedy."

The family said the Army told them a suspect had been identified, but the Army is not commenting on anything beyond a bare-bones press release.

Nkenge Fonteneaux commented on her Facebook page:

This is absolutely heartbreaking my baby sister life has been taking by one of you COWARDS I rebuke you in the name of Jesus just kno her life was surrounded by wonderful people who luved her dearly ANGEL UPABOVE PROTECT US WITH YOUR BEAUTIFUL WHITE WINGS.

I honor your sisters service and pray for peace for her family.  Please know that God reserves a special place in Heaven for Soldiers and a special place in Hell for those who kill them.

people in the military are no safer than any of us-and murderers number among them too just like out in the civilian world. As humans go, people employed by the armed forces are no better or worse than any of us, they just work for the government.

what is really sad is that she sounds like she was going places-and someone needlessly put a stop to that. what a waste.

Yeah, because the Marines are so pure, not a one of them are violent rapist/murderers, amirite? If Army "officials do not believe there is any further threat to the Fort Carson community," it's because they know who did it and transferred him somewhere else, so he can be a threat there.  Probably Iraq or Afghanistan, where he can rape & murder to his heart's content, and get praised for it on Fox News.
