Following a nine-month investigation, Army officials have ruled that the death of a Quincy soldier in Afghanistan was a suicide.

Thirty-year-old Ciara Durkin was found dead with a bullet wound to her head in September. She was found on a secure section of Bagram Air Base.

Family members have described Durkin as someone who would not kill herself, and they say they're upset by the Army's conclusion.
