This week’s episode is about Lance Cpl Riley Schultz who joined the U.S. Marine Corps after high school. Riley Schultz, 19, was found deceased on March 15, 2019, at Camp Pendleton, in San Diego County, Calif. While on duty, he was killed by a single gunshot wound to the head. The Marine corps ruled Riley’s death was self inflicted. However, his family doesn’t believe this. The family has been so desperate for answers, they exhumed Riley’s body so it could be reexamined.

The family found abrasions on his body and a fractured hyoid bone. To the family, it appears someone may have assaulted Riley before his death.

Misty Schultz-McCoy of Colorado is understandably upset about her son’s death. She knows he wouldn’t kill himself. He was looking forward to coming home for a visit and just enjoying life.
On the day of Riley’s death, he was scheduled to guard some company equipment between 3:50 and 5 am. Another Marine arrived to relieve Riley and found him deceased. What’s also troubling is that Riley’s family was originally told his death wasn’t a suicide. They then changed the decision.

If you know anything about Riley’s death, please contact the family. Please also visit the 🇺🇸 For Corporal Riley Schultz us FB page for more information about this story. Misty has also told me that you can also contact her through the 🇺🇸 For Corporal Riley Schultz us FB page or you can email her at misschultz123@gmail.com.
