Roman-Martinez, 21, was a paratrooper with the 82nd Airborne Division. He was reported missing May 23 while on a Memorial Day weekend camping trip with friends at Cape Lookout National Seashore. A $25,000 reward has been offered for tips leading to an arrest and conviction in the case, the Army says. To date, no arrests have been announced.
The autopsy examined a severed head, as neither the torso nor any extremities were available, and showed evidence of multiple chop injuries, a broken jaw, cuts and a fractured cervical spine, according to the Observer.
