Family says Marine dies in Afghanistan

The Associated Press

CANTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. — A Marine from Michigan who would have turned 22 on St. Patrick’s
Day has been killed in Afghanistan, his family said.

The remains of Cpl. Jacob H. Turbett were returned Feb. 15 to Dover Air Force Base, Del.

His wife, Crystal, said her husband grew up in Canton Township in Wayne County, west of
Detroit. She said the military told her that Turbett died Feb. 13.

Other details were not immediately available, and his wife said funeral arrangements were
incomplete.

Turbett wrote on his Facebook page that he was a 2007 graduate of Canton High School and was
serving as a combat engineer. His unit was based at Camp Lejeune, N.C.
