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: 1) a report of Investigative Action (March 24, 2007), which is an interview with the US Navy Dog Handler on the Task Force 88 raid when Mr. Mohammed was captured and died; 2) a report of Investigative Action (March 26, 2007), which are Photos & analysis of the ladder used as litter to transport Mr. Mohammed once he died; and 3) a report of Investigative Action (March 26, 2007), which is a list of people reported killed or detained during the raid while visiting the house during the raid to determine if Mr. Mohammed had family in the area (with Arabic translation). The Navy Dog Handler reported that he did not engage Mr. Mohammed, and only saw him after he was dead. The photos are visible. The list of names produced information that Mr. Mohammed was from Beyji, Iraq. There also appear to be others from this town still in custody.
