Military discovers additional remains of Sgt. La David Johnson in Niger

The team that was attacked in the ambush was made up of a dozen US soldiers and 30 Nigerien forces on a reconnaissance mission near the village of Tongo Tongo.

It wasn't immediately clear why some of Johnson's remains were left in the country.

The military and an Federal Bureau of Investigation team in Niger discovered more remains of Sgt. The Pentagon said Tuesday that a military investigation team found additional remains of Johnson on November 12 at the site where his body had been recovered a month earlier.

When Johnson's widow received his body, she was told that the casket must remain closed.

Johnson was reportedly found almost a mile away from the central scene of the ambush in Niger that killed him and three other USA soldiers. Officials have declined to confirm reports Johnson's body was found tied or handcuffed and that he had been executed.

Two villagers who found Sgt Johnson said his body had a gaping head wound and his hands had been bound. "La David T. Johnson", White said. "We extend our deepest condolences to all of the families of the fallen". The others were Staff Sgt. Bryan C. Black, 35, of Puyallup, Washington; Staff Sgt. Jeremiah W. Johnson, 39, of Springboro, Ohio; and Staff Sgt. Dustin M. Wright, 29, of Lyons, Georgia.

Two more American troops were wounded and five Nigerien troops were also killed in the incident.

Johnson and three other USA soldiers were killed on October 4 when their convoy was ambushed as it left the village of Tongo Tongo.

His death was politicized when a United States congresswoman accused Donald Trump of being insensitive during a phone call with Johnson's widow, an account she and her mother also supported while the president denied it.

The roughly 40-person U.S. -Nigerien patrol, which included 12 U.S. soldiers, came under attack by about 50 ISIS fighters as the unit was returning to its camp.

The Defense Department has said it expects the investigation into the Niger ambush to be completed by January.
