Local Media Report: Maine Soldier Dies in Afghanistan, Yet Another 'Noncombat' Death.

News of yet another "nonhostile" death for a U.S. military person abroad has surfaced in local media in Maine.

A former South Portland man, age 22, is reported to have been killed while serving with the military in Afghanistan. His family said they were told it was due to "noncombat" causes.

Justin Buxbaum's grandfather said he was shot in the stomach. He said the Army is looking into what happened, and speculated that his grandson's death may have been caused by friendly fire.

Justin, an engineer with the National Guard who worked to defuse IEDs, had already served two tours of duty in Iraq.
