Cannon airman found dead in Clovis park

 


CLOVIS — A Cannon Air Force Base senior airman was found dead Monday evening in a Clovis park from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to base officials.

Jasmine Lovett, assigned to the 27th Special Operations Wing Special Operations Security Forces Squadron, was found around 6 p.m. at Ned Houk Park, according to a news release posted on the base’s website.

The incident is under investigation by Clovis police, said base spokesman John Rebello.

Lovett was active duty with the Air Force for four years, he said.

Lovett, 22, was from Moultrie, Georgia, and services will be held for her there sometime next week, the director of Luke Strong and Son Mortuary in Moultrie said Thursday.

Her death was the second involving a Cannon airman this month. An airman was also found dead in his Clovis home on May 4. Clovis Police Capt. Roman Romero said the death was not criminal. Rebello said the cause of the May 4 death was still under investigation.

As a retired AF senior Airman and Clovisite this hits me very deeply. how can we better serve our military who serve us??? Did this young person have any avenues upon which to turn when her despair became great enough to take her own life???
