A soldier of the Australian Special Operations Forces has reportedly died three years after raising Afghanistan war crime allegations, it has been reported.
The 45-year-old soldier, Sergeant Kevin Frost went public in 2016, admitting his involvement in an alleged war crime in Afghanistan.
“The particular incident that I was involved in resulted in the POW that I had captured actually being executed, murdered,” he told ABC during a television interview.
Sergeant Frost further added “I can’t remember if he cut the cuffs off first or if he cut the cuffs off after he shot him. That’s the one point I can’t remember there, cause I wasn’t looking.
“I didn’t want to look. I turned around and the guy was dead. He’d been shot through the forehead,” he added.
The family of Sergeant Frost confirmed over the weekend that he tragically passed away after going missing near his Busselton home last week.
The friends of Sergeant Frost described him as ‘fearless, proud and witty man’ while paying tribute to him, according to The NEWDAILY.
The death of Sergeant Frost comes as Prime Minister Scott Morrison says his government will consider calling a royal commission next year into veterans’ suicides.
