Vice Adm. Scott A. Stearney, commander of U.S. 5th Fleet, was found dead his quarters in Bahrain on Saturday, according to a statement from Chief of Naval Operations Adm. John Richardson.

“The Naval Criminal Investigative Service and the Bahraini Ministry of Interior are cooperating on the investigation, but at this time no foul play is suspected,” read a statement from Richardson.

A Navy spokesperson didn’t have additional information when contacted by USNI News on Saturday.

Rear Adm. Paul Schlise, the deputy commander of 5th Fleet, has assumed command in the interim.

Stearney had taken command of 5th Fleet in May.

U.S. Navy Chief of Naval Operations Adm. John Richardson discusses the death of Vice Adm. Scott Stearney, commander of U.S. Naval Forces Central Command and commander of U.S. Fifth Fleet in Bahrain. He was found deceased in his residence in Bahrain, Dec. 1, 2018. This is devastating news for the Stearney family, for the team at Fifth Fleet and for the entire Navy. Scott Stearney was a decorated Naval warrior. He was a devoted husband and father, and he was a good friend to all. The Naval Criminal Investigative Service and the Bahraini Ministry of Interior are cooperating on the investigation, but at this time no foul play is suspected. Rear Adm. Paul Schlise, the deputy commander of Fifth Fleet, has assumed command and is maintaining continuity in our responsibilities and posture in the U.S. Fifth Fleet. Adm. Richardson asks that “ you keep the Stearney Family in your prayers and respect their privacy as they navigate through these very difficult times.”

Note: More information will follow when available!
