APD investigates 2 unusual deaths at Point Woronzof

Two suspicious deaths in Anchorage have local police puzzled. APD was investigating a body that was found at the city’s Point Woronzoff early Thursday morning when they found a second person nearby, critically wounded. That person has since died in an Anchorage hospital.

Police spokesperson Anita Shell is saying little about the incident, except that someone called about the first body around 8:30 a.m. The second victim was located almost an hour later. Shell, in a press release, says the victims are a male and a female, and that police are in the process of notifying next of kin.

The cause of death has not been released for either victim.
