McALESTER, Okla. (AP) - Funeral services have been scheduled for a U.S. Army soldier from McAlester who died at Fort Benning, Georgia.

Services for 19-year-old Pfc. Hank Brown will be Saturday at 2 p.m. at Brumley-Mills Funeral Home in McAlester.

The circumstances of how Brown died have not been released. The fort has said only that Brown was off-duty and was swimming at a fitness center at the base when he died on Aug. 3.

Brown’s mother - Nova Brown - told the McAlester News-Capitol (https://bit.ly/1Wlzezi ) that she hasn’t been told what happened to her son. The newspaper says a spokesman at the base said Brown’s death is still under investigation.
