FAIRBANKS - Army officials released the identities of two people found dead at Fort Wainwright.

Officials identified them as 23-year-old Spc. Benjamin Bays, of Brazil, Ind., and his 22-year-old wife, Faith.

Their bodies were found in their residence Tuesday morning. The discovery was announced late Wednesday, and identities released Thursday after relatives were notified.

Base spokeswoman Linda Douglass said Bays was a radio operator with the 28th Military Police Detachment.

He joined the Army in March 2005 and was stationed at Fort Wainwright five months later.

Douglass said the causes of death are not known. The Army is still investigating and has released no other details.
