A sailor from Massachusetts died overseas from a non-combat related injury, according to the Department of Defense.
Petty Officer 2nd Class Andrew J. Clement, 38, died Tuesday while deployed to Camp Lemonnier in Djibouti.
The Pentagon says officials are still investigating his death.
Defense officials say Clement was a mobilized Navy reservist who was assigned to the Navy Reserve Unit Tactical Air Control Squadron 22 in Quincy that was deployed to Camp Lemonnier.
Clement lived in Peabody when he entered the Navy, but was a resident of Topsfield at the time of his death.
