Why Did This Happen?March 21st, 2007 by josh farley
The Kitsap County Coroner’s Office and the Navy have now both confirmed that Capt. G. Lindsay Perkins Jr. (pictured) died of an apparent self-inflicted gun shot wound to the head.
Ed Friedrich, the military and ferry reporter here at the Kitsap Sun, just talked to the county coroner who confirmed Perkins — commander of Fleet and Industrial Supply Center, Puget Sound — died of the gun shot wound.
But we have no idea why. Naval Criminal Investigative Service is definitely investigating, but unlike our local police departments, we’re not necessarily privy to that answer.
In any case, I have been told by many associated this week that it’s been a dark week for Naval Base Kitsap. As you’ve read here and at other news sites, the base’s former command master chief, Edward E. Scott, was arrested Friday and charged with attempting to solicit child sex.
