Special Agent Raymond Round was shot and killed while stationed in Thailand.

Special Agent Round was assigned to the OSI Detachment 5105 at U-Tapao Airfield in Thailand to investigate a significant black market ring which involved thefts of U.S. Air Force supplies.

He was returning to his home in the base housing complex when two Thai nationals motorcycles approached him and ordered him out of his car at gunpoint. Upon exiting his car he was immediately shot in the head and killed. It was later determined that he was shot and killed as part of a contract killing in revenge for his work to break up the criminal ring at U-Tapao Airfield.

Special Agent Round was posthumously awarded the Bronze Star and is buried at Fort Snelling National Cemetery in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

My novel AIR BASE has the fictionalization of his murder right from page one. It wasn't the Thais running the massive theft ring (they were stooges), but the Air Force Security Police and AFOSi that was running it. They covered it all up. In the sequel to the novel called THAILAND I 'solve' or explain his murder in the final denouement. The books are on Amazon for sale.
