FORT CAVAZOS, Texas (KWTX) - UPDATE: Fort Cavazos soldier Craig Chamberlain is not a person of interest in the death of his spouse, Cameron Chamberlain, who was found dead on May 25, Army officials said.

Special Agents with the Army Criminal Investigation Division’s Central Texas Field Office are working jointly with detectives from the Killeen Police Department to investigate Chamberlain’s death.

An official cause and manner of death will not be determined until the autopsy report is released, officials said.

If anyone has information regarding Chamberlain’s death, contact Army CID at 254-287-2722. Anonymous tips can be submitted through the CID online portal.

Craig Chamberlain was found alive in Killeen by a civilian team working with his family after he stopped showing up for work on post back in May.

Cameron Chamberlain, who initially reported her husband was missing, was found dead before her husband resurfaced.

The woman first reported her husband missing on May 15. At the time, Army post said that, based on information discovered through its investigations, it believed Craig Chamberlain “willfully absented” himself from the Army.

Prior to her death, Cameron told KWTX the past few months on post were hard on her husband, and that contributed to a change in his mental health.

“When I met him, he was a carefree, loving, laid back person. He didn’t have a mean bone in his body,” Cameron said, “He had no hate in his heart. He was a happy man. And (Fort Cavazos) and his leadership completely destroyed him.”
