Family of slain Houston U.S. Navy Sailor August Provost is making funeral arrangements today. "We would never expect this, not in a lifetime," said his aunt, Jodi Johnson.

Provost's body was found in a guard shack at Camp Pendleton near San Diego on Tuesday morning. Authorities are investigating the case as a homicide.

Naval Criminal Investigative Service says they have a person of interest in custody, though that person has not been charged with any crime.

Provost graduated Aldine senior high school in 1999.
