A 24-year-old airman from F.E. Warren Air Force Base in Wyoming and two civilians were found dead early Tuesday morning in a suspected murder.

Amn. Abigail Maxine Smith, of Fairfield, Pennsylvania, and the other two people were found dead off-base at about 12:05 a.m., F.E. Warren said in a news release.

Smith was an electronic maintenance technician with the 90th Missile Maintenance Squadron, who joined the Air Force in January 2016, said SrA Abbigayle Williams, a spokesman for the 90th Missile Wing at F.E. Warren.

Williams said additional information on the murder is not yet available. The Cheyenne Police Department, which is leading the investigation, has not yet returned calls requesting information.

“Our deepest condolences to the family and friends of those affected by this incident,” 90th Wing Commander Col. Peter Bonetti said in the release. “Airman and families define our Air Force, they are and always will be our top priority. Losing one is too many.”
