Staff Sgt. Amy Seyboth-Tirador death ruled a suicide.


U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Amy Seyboth-Tirador, 29, was killed in Iraq by a gunshot wound to the back of the head. She was an Army interrogator; recipient of a Bronze Star, for saving another soldier's life; and a trained Arabic linguist. Her death has recently been ruled by a suicide by the Army but her family isn’t buying it. Colleen Murphy, Amy's mother, is set to begin her own investigation into her daughters death.

I am interested into what Colleen will unearth. Thank you SSG Seyboth-Tirador for your service. You are not forgotten.

A Gun Shot Wound to the BACK of the head? That is very odd. On all the suicides by guns I investigated, the person shot them themselves in the head on the side or the front (in a few cases right into the area of the heart) but not the back of the head.

It's something that's hard to do, so we always figured the person was going to put the gun in an easy place to hold it...

Yep, sounds odd, but there are lots of other things to investigate. (Residue on her hands etc.)
If Army CID investigated, I wouldn't give them much respect...they suck.

How on earth does one go about committing suicide by shooting yourself in the back of the head? That sounds very suspicious to me...

I am Staff Sergeant (retired) Brown. I knew Amy when she was PFC Seyboth. We were stationed in Germany with the 1st Infantry Division. Amy was a medic then. I deployed to Turkey with her. She is not the type of person who would have committed suicide. She was a sharp Soldier and a fast tracker. I do not appreciate the lies about her committing suicide. These are lies, lies, lies, lies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I agree with others. A gunshot to the back of the head is a very unusual means of committing suicide.

Amy was an amazing person with so much spirit. I was stationed with her Germany when we were assigned to 1st Infantry Division. She was a great friend and a great soldier who was dedicated to her job. She would never have taken her own life. I am honored to have known Amy and I am thankful for all she did.

I knew Amy before she went in the military. She and I played together in the band at church. There is NO way Amy committed suicide. This is the biggest farce I have ever heard of. I CANNOT believe that the US ARMY came to this bull$*!t conclusion. There is something very wrong here. I have my suspicions..... Amy you are missed. greatest sense of humor!
