Still, Fort Bragg parents are worried.  Over the past four years, at different times, three of the babies who dies lived with their families in one townhouse at Fort Bragg.  This circumstance prompted the Army to conduct an investigation into possible environmental toxins, including the drywall used in the home.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission, CPSC, investigated the housing and determined in its final report that there was no environmental cause in the home to account for the tragedies.
The townhouse that was home to three of the families with babies that died currently remains empty.
