A suburban family says they were mistakenly told that a soldier died from injuries suffered in Afghanistan.

Edgar Roberts was injured in a roadside bombing.

He was born in Belize and graduated from Thornton high school in Harvey.

The family was told Thursday that Roberts was in intensive care at the National Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland even though the family was told on Tuesday that he had died.
