The Ministry of Defence (MoD) has launched an investigation into the death of a 19-year-old gunner on an army base in Wiltshire.
Jaysley-Louise Beck, from Ulverston in the Lake District, was found dead at the Larkhill barracks on 15 December last year.
An MoD spokesperson said: “It was with sadness that we confirmed the death of Gunner Jaysley-Louise Beck at Larkhill in December 2021.
“As there are ongoing investigations, it would be inappropriate to comment further, but any death is a tragedy and our sympathies remain with the families and friends of those affected.”
An inquest was opened at Wiltshire and Swindon Coroners’ Court in Salisbury.
Her family released the following tribute to YorkshireLive: “Jaysley is a loving and caring person who would go above and beyond to help anyone in a less fortunate position than herself.
“If there is ever a person who needs help, you could always count on Jaze to be there.
“Her compassion for others and her ability to light up the room putting a smile on anybody’s face is immeasurable.”
