Camp Pendleton officials released the name of a Marine found dead Monday morning.
Lance Cpl. Michael J. Ronner, 23, of Sudbury, Mass., was found at approximately 9:15 a.m, according to base officials.
Camp Pendleton Provost Marshal's Office and paramedics responded to the scene. Paramedics began life saving support but were unsuccessful in resuscitating him.
The base has released little on the death, but Naval Criminal Investigative Service agents are treating the Marine's death as a suicide, the North County Times reports. Eleven of the 32 reported Marine Corps suicides last year were on Camp Pendleton, the report adds.
Ronner enlisted in the Marine Corps Jan. 11, 2010 and was assigned to 9th Communication Battalion, I Marine Expeditionary Force Headquarters Group, I Marine Expeditionary Force, Camp Pendleton, Calif., according to the release.
His awards include the National Defense Service Medal and the Global War on Terrorism Service Medal.
