STUTTGART, Germany — Authorities are investigating death of an Army military police officer who was found dead Monday inside her patrol car at Stuttgart Army Airfield.

Pfc. Synne Bradshaw, 24, of Pacifica, Calif., was assigned to the 554th Military Police Company, 709th MP Battalion, 18th MP Brigade. Bradshaw was found alone and unresponsive in her patrol car by fellow MPs on Monday afternoon, the 21st Theater Sustainment Command said in a statement.

Paramedics were called to the scene, but Bradshaw was pronounced dead just before 4 p.m., the Army said.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with Pfc. Bradshaw’s loved ones during an unimaginably difficult time for them,” Col. Arturo Horton, the 18th MP Brigade commander, said in a statement. “The Brigade and the Army lost a valuable soldier, and her fellow MPs lost a valuable teammate and friend. Her life ended far too soon; that impact will resonate in the formation for quite some time.”

A memorial service is yet to be scheduled.
