(INDIANAPOLIS) - Nearly 150 friends and family members gathered Tuesday to pay their final respects to Marine Lance Cpl. Johnathon K. Goffred at St. Timothy's Episcopal Church.

Goffred was found dead January 26th in his barracks at Camp Pendleton, California.

The rifleman served in the 3rd Battalion, 1st Marine Regiment and had returned to the U.S. last year after a seven-month deployment in Iraq.

His death is speculated to be linked to an increase in mental health issues and suicides among troops.
