Brig. General Connected To Minot AFB Broken Arrow Mishap Dies From Gunshot Wound

They can destroy my fucking hard work, I found in the news, but still can't hide from there deadly works in the news.


ELMENDORF AIR FORCE BASE, Alaska -- The death of Brig. Gen. Thomas Tinsley, commander of Elmendorf Air Force Base's 3rd fighter wing, has brought feelings of shock and sadness to the base Monday night.

Tinsley died in his on-base home Sunday night of a single gun shot wound to the chest, according to Air Force officials.

It happened just after 10 p.m. The base command center received reports of a single shot fired and screams coming from Tinsley's home. A doctor pronounced Tinsley dead just over a half hour later.

"To the best information we have, it's a possibility it was a self-inflicted gun shot wound," said Col. Richard Walberg in a press conference.

The Air Force is flying pathologists from the Lower 48 to the base to determine the official cause of death, Walberg said. From here, the colonel says the official investigation could take up to a month. For now, he said, the first priority is helping everyone sort through the loss.

"We're all very much in shock and very deeply saddened by what's happened," said Sgt. Mikal Canfield with 3rd wing public affairs.

The skies were quiet Monday over Elmendorf, now a community in mourning.

Walberg lives across the street from the Tinsley family. He and Dr. Eli Powell were among the first on the scene.

"His wife and his daughter were in the home," Walberg said.

Tinsley took over as commander in May of 2007 and oversaw a major change when F-22 Raptors arrived on base, designed to replace the F-15s.

Colleagues said Tinsley will be remembered both for his leadership and friendship.

"I think we did a lot of great things, and we had a lot of fun," Walberg said. "And this is a real tragedy, and I've lost a very, very good friend."

Those who knew and loved him are left to cope with the loss.

Chaplains held a mass this morning in honor of Tinsley, although officials said they're giving Tinsley's wife Joanna time to grieve before planning a formal memorial service.

Walberg said chaplains and medical professionals are in place to help with the grieving process.

Walberg also said he believes the base has an adequate suicide prevention and counseling program.


Watch these prick's demeanor.

I swear they all knwo WTF really happened and they're Wagging the Fucking Dog!

You can't fucking hide your lying, even on fucking camera during a press conference
