Army Will Conduct Criminal Probe in Death of Tillman

The Army announces a criminal investigation into the death of Pat Tillman, who died fighting in Afghanistan nearly two years ago. Tillman gave up an NFL football career to join the Army after the Sept. 11 attacks. The Army at first said Tillman was killed by enemy fire during a firefight -- then later determined he had been accidentally shot by other U.S. soldiers.
