Since its inception, Skype has helped millions communicate with one another over the Internet. While most of these communications would be considered positive, one particular Skype (News - Alert) session had a tragic ending. It appears that tragic ending is also still surrounded by quite a bit of mystery.
An army nurse, Captain Bruce Kevin Clark was Skyping with his wife, Susan Orellana-Clark, when he suddenly pitched forward dead and his wife said she could see a bullet hole in a closed closet door.
The family later issued a statement regarding what the soldier’s wife was able to witness during the video chat.
At the time of the incident, the family hoped for a revival, but later learned it was impossible. Although the circumstances were unimaginable, Bruce's wife and extended family will be forever thankful that he and his wife were together in his last moments.
The family is now saying the feed continued to run for two hours, as Susan Orellana-Clark made frantic phone calls, trying to get help for her husband. Family members who tried to help the soldier’s wife said they could also see a bullet hole on the closet door directly behind Clark’s lifeless body.
Clark’s wife said eventually two members of the military did arrive and checked his pulse, but would not provide any details on his condition. It is because the military was less than forthcoming that the family believes it needed to release a statement detailing what they saw.
"As uncomfortable as this is for me," Orellana-Clark said, "I am releasing this statement to honor my husband and dispel the inaccurate information and supposition promulgated by other parties."
There have been very few details about what the Military believes occurred and at the moment, they won’t release even the very basic of details. "There's an ongoing investigation," said Beaumont public affairs officer Clarence Davis. He would not elaborate.
Clark was deployed to Afghanistan in March of this year.
