ANCHORAGE, Alaska — The FBI is seeking more information about a vehicle that may have been involved in the fatal shootings of two Coast Guard membersearlier this month in Kodiak.
According to FBI spokesperson Darrin Jones, investigators want to hear from anyone who saw a blue 2001 Honda CR-V near Mile 2 of Anton Larson Bay Road on Thursday, April 12 between 7 a.m. and 7:18 a.m.
“The vehicle may have been parked along the roadway, or partially hidden behind a building or other obstruction in a fashion that it could have observed vehicles passing on the roadway,” officials wrote Wednesday. “It may also have been parked briefly in the parking lot of the Comfort Inn.”
Coast Guard Petty Officer 1st Class James Hopkins and retired Chief Petty Officer Richard Belisle were found dead on the morning of April 12 at their stations in Coast Guard Communications Station Kodiak.
The FBI has been leading an investigation into the deaths as a double homicide and recently searched the home of James Wells, a colleague of Hopkins and Belisle. Last week, investigators asked for information on two vehicles in connection with the shootings, including the CR-V and a white 2002 Dodge Ram pickup truck.
