CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -

Police in Clarksville are investigating the death of an Army officer from Fort Campbell, Ky., who was found dead at his home over the weekend.

Fort Campbell spokesman Robert Jenkins said the officer was 24-year-old 1st Lt. Chris Rogan, who was assigned to the 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division.

Jenkins said his family has been notified and he couldn't provide more details while the death was under investigation.

Clarksville police found Rogan after they got a call about a deceased person at his home around 7 p.m. CDT Sunday, police spokesman Jim Knoll said.

The cause of death was under investigation, Knoll said.

U.S. Rep. Jim Himes of Connecticut released a statement about Rogan's death and said Rogan was a West Point graduate from Berlin.

"We must never forget the courage and selflessness with which they served or let their deaths be in vain," Himes said in a statement. "My heart goes out to the friends and families of these two patriots."

Himes also remembered Army Capt. Andrew M. Pedersen-Keel, who graduated from Avon Old Farms School in 2003.

Military officials said Pedersen-Keel was killed by a member of the Afghan National Police while he was conducting a patrol brief in the Jalrez District Monday.
