Despite Veteran’s Tragic Death, Lt. Gov. ‘Confident’ in Services for Veterans
DES MOINES, Iowa -- Questions continue to surround the death of the Army veteran found in Water Works Park last week. Police say 41-year-old Richard Miles was found not wearing a coat or shoes and he likely died of exposure to freezing temperatures. Friends say Miles disappeared earlier this month, but returned home recently to seek help. They say he had been struggling with issues including depression for years after serving in the Army in the mid 2000’s.
