This is an NCIS investigation into the death of Hasan Salih Mohammed, an Iraqi civilian who died following a Task Force 88 raid in Tawara Iraq on February 5, 2007. Mr. Mohammed died of unknown causes while being taken in to custody. His body was left on the helicopter Landing Zone (LZ) the night of his death, but was eventually recovered by Marine Patrol 3/4 Kilo Co. and turned over to Iraqi Policemen (IP). The IPs brought the body to the local hospital that eventually released the body to Mr. Mohammed's son. Mr. Mohammed's son returned the body to village of Beyji, Iraq for local burial, Mr. Mohammed's home village. This file contains a report of Investigative Action (March 22, 2007), which is an interview with the home owner of the house that was raided and where Mr. Mohammed was taken in to custody. The homeowner did know Mr. Mohammed, but was not aware if he had any medical problems. The home owner allowed an examination and photographing of the house. The Investigator found a 10 year old boy who was reported to have told people that Mr. Mohammed was "Dropped from a helicopter", and asked him if he actually saw that event. The boy said it was not true.
