Fluor employee victim of brutal rape at FOB Shank in Afghanistan Critical in Germany

Updates:  Fluor states that the rape victim did not die but is in critical condition in Germany.

This post has been edited to correct errors in the original that reported the victim had died in Germany of her injuries.-Yes, sometimes I get it wrong too. Ms Sparky-July 26, 2011

I’ve just learned there’s been a brutal   at in . The victim was reportedly a female Fluor employee from the Macedonia region.

I’m not certain of the date, but the attack occurred between July 17-22. She was reportedly found unconscious and was medi-vac’d to Bagram Air Field (BAF) and then to Germany where it has been reported, she died of her injuries.

This crime has apparently got the entire FOB locked down. Hopefully, they’ll find the person(s) who committed this heinous crime and prosecute them to the full extent of the law.

This is but another on the long list of tragic rapes and murders in Iraq and Afghanistan.

As soon as I get more information on this sad tragedy I will update the post.

My most heartfelt condolences to the friends, family and co-workers of this victim.

  1. FOB Shank

    I worked there alongside Fluor in 2009, it was a great place and the people were fantastic, just shows how much things change
    Its a terrible shame when the lunatics escape the ayslum and this poor girl suffers the consequences

    I work for Fluor in Afghanistan and I heard she had died as well. If Fluor would have told us what was going on to begin with there would be no rumors. But they try to cover these things up and that’s how rumors start. They wouldn’t have even sent out the email if Ms Sparky hadn’t posted something about it here. So instead of flipping her a bunch of shit we should be thanking her for forcing Fluor to communicate with us. I have never in my life worked for such an f’d up company.

    I do my best to try to publish the facts. I got two separate emails stating she had sadly died in Germany. That was heartbreaking, the whole situation is heartbreaking. I still would not trust Fluor to tell you the whole truth about her condition in Germany.
