Uncovering Truth Amidst Tragedy

An Army board of inquiry determined that Richard Halliday died on July 23, 2020, the day he was last seen at Fort Bliss, an Army statement said. The statement does not provide a manner or cause of death, or any indication that Halliday’s remains were recovered.

“On April 24, 2024, the Army informed the Halliday family that the preponderance of evidence provided during a board of inquiry supported changing the duty status of Pvt. Richard Halliday from missing to deceased,” the statement said. “The BOI determined that Pvt. Halliday died on July 23, 2020. The Army expresses its deepest condolences to the Halliday family and notes that this determination will allow us to further support the family under the Army Casualty Program.”

Halliday was a 21-year-old private assigned to the 32nd Army Air and Missile Defense Command, and his disappearance drew media attention in El Paso and elsewhere over the following months.
