Alaska State Troopers are responding to Yakutat to assist the local police department in a death investigation.
Megan Peters, a spokesperson for the Alaska State Troopers, says one person had been detained but did not elaborate on what charges the suspect may face.
In an email, Peters confirmed that troopers are responding at the invitation of the Yakutat Police Department. The request from Yakutat PD came “in relation to taking case responsibility,” said Peters.
Troopers had no more information to provide about the death investigation.
