NCIS Report (Death): 05FEB07-24IZ-0023-7HMA; Hasan Salih Mohammed, Battle Position (BP) Tarawa, Iraq, February 5, 2007

June 3, 2008 | NCIS | ACLU-RDI 5772
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 Investigation (Feb. 12, 2007), which contains a chart/list of the persons taken in to custody following the raid on February 5, 2007. This is a a list of the sixteen (16) occupants of the home that was raided. A disposition of the persons taken in to custody appears to have a discrepancy as it concerns Mr. Mohammed (guest #5), who is listed as "detained and released" as opposed to "Was found dead after the raid on the way to the chopper's landing ground", which is what is listed for the detainee (guest #4) listed above Mr. Mohammed.
