    Army investigators say they found no bullet wound and no foul play in the death of a soldier who died during a Skype video chat with his Texas-based wife.

    Capt. Bruce Kevin Clark's wife says her husband fell forward and she saw a bullet hole in the closet behind him, raising the question of whether he had been shot.

    But Christopher Grey, a spokesman for the Army Criminal Investigation Command, said Monday that no bullet wound was found in Clark's body.

    Grey says an autopsy is being done to determine the cause of death.

    A funeral is planned in Spencerport, N.Y., a suburb of Rochester and his wife's hometown, but details were not immediately available. Clark and his wife moved there in 2000 and he joined the Army six years later.

    Clark, an Army chief nurse, was assigned to the William Beaumont Army Medical Center in El Paso and deployed in March. Taber-Thomas said Clark is survived by his wife and two daughters, age 3 and 9.
