Seven soldiers who went camping with a Fort Bragg paratrooper before his severed head washed up on a beach are facing courts-martial on conspiracy and a slew of other charges.

The North Carolina-based soldiers were the last to see decorated Spc. Enrique Roman-Martinez, 21, during their trip to Cape Lookout National Seashore for Memorial Day weekend in May 2020.

The Californian was reported missing on May 22 — six days before his severed head was found washed up on the shore. His body has never been found.

His homicide case remains open with a $50,000 reward, but was moved to “cold case status,” a spokeswoman for the Army Criminal Investigation Division said.

No one has been charged with his death, and the seven facing courts-martial are for charges not directly related to the homicide, officials stressed.
