NORFOLK, Va. (Tribune News Service) — The Navy has identified a sailor found dead at Naval Station Norfolk Friday.

He is 22-year-old Petty Officer 3rd Class Joshua Johnson, Navy spokesman George Bieber said in a news release Monday morning.

The Navy is investigating Johnson’s death but there are no indications of foul play, he said.

Johnson was an information systems technician from Orange Park, Fla. He was assigned to Naval Computer and Telecommunications Area Master Station Atlantic in January 2016, Bieber said in the release.

He worked in the operation's transport division as a satellite management center technician.

He enlisted in the Navy in June 2015 and completed basic training at Recruit Training Command Great Lakes, Ill. After graduating, he went to IT “A” school from August 2015 to January 2016, Bieber said.

Johnson advanced to petty officer third class in December 2016.
