Yorktown family grieves loss of slain soldier
A Yorktown family is continuing to grieve as it waits for the body of slain Pfc. David Fahey to be released by the Army.
Military officials say Fahey was serving as a military policeman with the U.S. Army in Afghanistan when he was killed by a roadside bomb on Monday.
Bob Castner, a family friend, says Fahey was a bit of a practical joker, but also someone that you could always rely on to be there for you.
Another family friend, Mary Grace Walker, says the family wants the public to know it is proud of the choice Fahey made in serving his country
Funeral arrangements for Fahey have yet to be finalized.
