Apparent suicide on POW

Alaska State Troopers are investigating an apparent suicide on Prince of Wales Island. Troopers discovered the body of a man outside of a truck near Hydaburg Road and One Duck Trailhead after responding to a call around 7 a.m. Tuesday.

A spokesperson for the troopers told KRBD that while next of kin has been identified, those family members have not yet been contacted.

The state medical examiner in Anchorage will conduct an autopsy of the body to determine whether the death was a suicide.
