Death of a soldier due to training accident at Fort Knox in the summer of 1995

I’m trying to find any and all information of the death of SGT Anthony Powell at Fort Knox, Kentucky. We were assigned to Alpha company 1/70th Armor Battalion. It happened on a tank range ( I think Wilcox range, but not 100% on that.)  I’m almost certain it was 1995. I know for a fact it was during the summer because we were training West Point cadets. Any help teaching me how to research this would be greatly appreciated.
