ANCHORAGE, Alaska — An Alaska family is in Anchorage this week saying goodbye to two of its members, including a woman who was severely beaten in Fairbanks -- as well as a man who died in a car crash after they visited her at an Anchorage hospital.
Jody Potts says the family's story began last week, when Fairbanks police located her aunt -- who has not been named -- after the beating.
“My aunt was found unconscious in a homeless camp in Fairbanks and she was taken here to Anchorage,” Potts said. “They found massive bleeding in her brain.”
According to APD a member of the woman's family, 71-year-old Isaac Juneby, was leaving the woman's hospital Sunday night when he ran a red light at the intersection of O'Malley Road and Lake Otis Parkway. Juneby, a chief in Eagle Village in the 1970s and from 2002 to 2006, hit another car and was killed instantly.
