US Navy SEAL reservist Daniel Corbett has been held in prison in Serbia for eight months while under investigation for possession of an illegal handgun.
In July, his criminal lawyer was gunned down in Belgrade in a gangland-style hit that remains unsolved. It is not known if the lawyer’s killing is related to Corbett’s case.
Corbett, who goes by the nickname “Dirty,” had combat deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan, according to three sources familiar with his military record. He first served with SEAL Team 5 from 2004–2007, and for the next three years he was with the legendary SEAL Team 6, also known as Development Group or DEVGRU. That’s the unit that later killed Osama bin Laden.
