FILE – The Pentagon is seen from Air Force One as it flies over Washington, March 2, 2022. The U.S. has now collected 510 reports of unidentified flying objects, many of which are flying in sensitive military airspace. While there’s no evidence of extraterrestrials, they still pose a threat, the government said in a declassified report summary released Thursday, Jan. 12, 2023.

A service member was found dead in the Pentagon parking lot Tuesday, according to the Defense Department. 

Around 3:30 p.m., “the Pentagon Operations Center received a call requesting a welfare check on a military service member,” press secretary Brig. Gen. Pat Ryder said in a statement. 

When Pentagon police officers responded to the building’s North Parking, they discovered the service member in his vehicle apparently deceased, a finding confirmed by Arlington County Emergency Medical Services. 

The release had no additional details on the incident, and Ryder said an investigation is ongoing.
