An inside look into the strange case, possible love triangle of a Marine lieutenant charged with murder of man found in Joshua Tree National Park | Marine Corps Times

Curtis Lee Krueger had a respected Marine Corps career ― he had risen through the enlisted ranks and eventually earned a commission as a Marine officer.

But then he was charged with murder of man from Murrieta, California.

Krueger, a lieutenant with Combat Logistics Battalion 7 out of Twentynine Palms, California, pleaded not guilty to the murder of 54-year old Henry Stange in December. He is scheduled for another felony settlement conference Feb. 21.

Authorities narrowed in on Krueger as a suspect after the discovery of Stange’s body in a shallow grave in Joshua Tree National Park on June 2, 2018.

According to court documents obtained by Marine Corps Times, Stange’s grave site was stumbled upon by a man hiking through Joshua Tree National Park on June 1. The hiker snapped photographs of the site that was surrounded by vultures, which he believed contained a dead animal. He alerted park rangers to the shallow grave.
