ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Investigators recently searched a Kodiak Island home belonging to a man who worked alongside the two people killed in last Thursday’s double homicide at a Coast Guard communications station.
The FBI won't confirm that its agents were there, but neighbors say law enforcement agencies blocked access to the property over the weekend and could be seen going in and out of the home in the Bells Flats area.
Property records show the house, which is on Pavloff Circle, six miles south of the Coast Guard station, belongs to James Wells, a civilian rigger who works for the Coast Guard at the communications station.
Wells is pictured alongside the two shooting victims, retired Coast Guard Chief Petty Officer Richard Belisle and Petty Officer 1st Class James Hopkins, in a photograph the Coast Guard handed out following the double homicide.
The FBI will not say what, if any involvement Wells might have or where he is currently located.
