ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) – The body of a missing woman discovered by Alaska State Troopers is tied to a homicide investigation of a woman and man who died over the weekend.
The Anchorage Daily News reports troopers found the body of 28-year-old Alyssa Jimenez of Big Lake around 2:30 p.m. Tuesday on Knik-Goose Bay Road near Wasilla.
Troopers say the discovery is linked to an investigation into the deaths of 25-year-old Michael Attwood of Big Lake and 37-year-old Donna Marie Campos of Wasilla.
Troopers announced Sunday they were investigating Campos and Attwood’s deaths near a road in the same area.
A spokesman for the troopers says it is unclear how Jimenez knew Campos and Attwood, but troopers believe the deaths are related and the case is being treated as a homicide investigation.
