The mother of a Navy recruit who died in boot camp claims the service ignored clear PT-related health risks
The mother of a Navy recruit who died after a boot camp run at the Great Lakes base earlier this year said she will seek a second autopsy after a blood disorder was determined to have played a role in her daughter's death.
Kenya Evans said the Navy discovered that her daughter Kierra, 20, possessed the sickle cell trait during a medical exam. Most who have it don't experience symptoms of sickle cell disease — a potentially lethal condition that causes blood cells to deform and clog blood vessels — but they can surface during hard exercise.

Investigators are looking into the death of Marine Sgt. Derek Diesel, who was killed by a gunshot to the head on Aug. 18 while he was serving as an armed sentry at Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay, Georgia, military officials confirmed.
