A Hurlburt Field airman was found dead Sunday in Montana from an apparent suicide.
A hiker reported finding a man’s body, according to a news release from the Lincoln County, Mont., Sheriff’s Office. Deputies arrived to find the man hanging from a rope.
He was identified as 21-year-old Senior Airman Dalton Wayne Mossey.
The electrical systems apprentice with the 1st Special Operations Aircraft Maintenance Squadron had finished his military service commitment, according to Hurlburt Field. Mossey was on leave while transitioning from the Air Force.
