American missing person and homicide victim. Raised in Needham, where his brother still lives, Cox was one of several Marines who were involved in a hazing incident in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, allegedly the basis for the movie "A Few Good Men." While most of the ten Marines charged made a plea bargain to get out of the case, Cox and one other were tried and acquitted of wrong-doing. They both continued to serve out their term and were given honorable discharges.
They both were also pursuing legal action against the producers of the film in January 1994, when Cox was determined to be missing under mysterious circumstances. In early April, his partially decomposed body was found along the banks of the Charles River in Medfield, MA, dead from gunshot wounds in the head and body.
