ANCHORAGE, Alaska — A man’s body was discovered in Eagle River Tuesday afternoon, but Anchorage police aren't sure whether it is that of missing JBER Senior Airman Clinton Reeves.
APD spokesperson Lt. Dave Parker says the body was discovered by several women in a ravine on Golden Eagle Drive, north of Skyline Drive, shortly after 1:30 p.m. Tuesday. Police have blocked off Golden Eagle Drive but had not yet approached the body, waiting for the arrival of a crime scene vehicle that showed up shortly after 3:30 p.m.
APD detectives said Tuesday that Reeves is believed to have been the victim of foul play. and officials told media that his parents had been contacted to prepare them in case the body is his. Police said fingerprints from the body could be compared to Air Force records, which include fingerprints of all airmen, to determine whether or not it is Reeves.
Police say that while Reeves' case is APD's only active missing-person investigation, the body could be that of someone else.
