Troopers Investigate Death of Lower Kalskag Woman

State Troopers are investigating the death of a Lower Kalskag woman. Early saturday morning, troopers received a report that 27-year-old Marcia White was found dead in her home in Lower Kalskag. Megan Peters is a spokesperson for the Alaska State troopers.

“Troopers from Aniak and a roving VPSO responded to the village on snow machine at about 5:30 that morning to begin the investigation. Investigators from the Alaska Bureau of Investigation in Anchorage also travelled to the village to investigate the cause and circumstances surrounding the death,” said Peters.

ABI investigates serious crimes, but Peters wasn’t ready to label the death as suspicious. She says having ABI travel to the villages can be a precaution if the investigation warrants it.

White’s body is being sent to the medical examiners office for an autopsy. Troopers say the investigation is ongoing.
