SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Military investigators sought Monday to determine what led to the death of a 19-year-old Marine at Camp Pendleton over the weekend.

Lance Cpl. Mario Arias of Canoga Park was found dead in his barracks room on Sunday, according to the Miramar-based 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing Public Affairs Office.

Arias, who enlisted in the Marine Corps in August 2010, was an air-crew trainee from Marine Light Attack Helicopter Training Squadron 303, Marine Aircraft Group 39, 3rd MAW. He was the recipient of a National Defense Service Medal.

The cause of his death was not immediately clear, USMC officials said.

The Naval Criminal Investigative Service is heading the inquiry.
