Fairborn contractor’s death investigation turned over to FBI, DOJ

The Army Criminal Investigative Command has turned over the results of an investigation into the death of a Fairborn civilian defense contractor to the Federal Bureau of Investigation and U.S. Department of Justice for possible adjudication, an Army spokesman said Friday.

But the Army has not released the results of those findings and details surrounding the death of 27-year-old Christina S. Maddock, who was shot in February while on assignment at Camp Arena, Afghanistan, authorities have said. She died days later at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center in Germany.

Chris Grey, an Army Criminal Investigative Command spokesman in Quantico, Va., declined to comment Friday beyond a released statement about the seven-month investigation.

“The findings of that (Army) investigation have been turned over to the FBI and DOJ for disposition and or adjudication since the person involved in causing her death is a civilian and this was a non-combat related death,” he said in an email. He added his command “will not be releasing any further information at this time and until the FBI and DOJ have had the opportunity to fully review the investigation and its findings.”

Spokespersons at the FBI and the Department of Justice had no immediate comment when contacted Friday.

Maddock was on assignment to Afghanistan as a field service representative with Intelligent Software Solutions, a Colorado Springs, Colo.-headquartered company. She was a second lieutenant with the Ohio Air National Guard and last served with the 123rd Air Control Squadron in Blue Ash, near Cincinnati.

The 2003 Fairborn High School graduate earned a bachelor of arts degree in mass communications from Wright State University in 2009.
