BELTON (1080 KRLD)- The Bell County Sheriff's Office is looking into the reported drowning of a soldier from Fort Hood. 

Sunday, Specialist Francisco Hernadezvargas was on an inner tube being towed behind a boat on Stillhouse Hollow Lake -- the same lake where another Fort Hood soldier was found dead last month.

The Sheriff's office says Hernandezvargas went under and drowned. 

This is the fourth death of a Fort Hood soldier since June.
