According to an online dispatch, troopers received a report that Arlene Ivanoff, 55, and Fredrick Stickman, 37, had been found dead in the Yukon along with their unoccupied boat.

The initial investigation points to a boating accident that led to the drowning deaths of both victims, according to troopers. The investigation is ongoing, but troopers said that they don’t believe there is evidence of foul play.
