ANCHORAGE, Alaska — A body was found in North Pole Friday morning after snow was cleared off an area of industrial property, according to Alaska State Troopers.
Fairbanks patrol unit troopers were told about the discovery just before 8 a.m. Friday. Alaska Bureau of Investigation members subsequently recovered the remains, which are believed to be those of an adult man.
“Although tentative identification of the remains have been made, AST is awaiting confirmation from additional efforts to be undertaken at the State Medical Examiner's Office before publicly naming the person found,” troopers wrote in a dispatch late Friday. “Additional details are not being released at this time, as the investigation is on-going.”
