Two Bodies Found Outdoors in Anchorage

Two women have been found dead in Anchorage this week. Both were found outdoors.

The Alaska State Medical Examiner’s Office has identified the deceased woman found in South Anchorage Wednesday as 24-year-old Michelle Felber. Anchorage Police Department Spokesman Lieutenant Dave Parker says the Anchorage resident was reported missing by family members Monday, Oct. 8. But the family had not seen Felber for at least two months. The body was discovered by a man walking through a wooded area just north of the intersection of Dowling Road and Quinhagak Street. No cause or manner of death has been released by the medical examiner’s office. APD Homicide Unit detectives are continuing their investigation.

The remains of another deceased female have been found in the Mountain View neighborhood of Anchorage. Parker says the woman’s body was found by passersby around 1:30 Thursday afternoon near the Mountain View Community Church. The body will be sent to the medical examiner’s office for identification. This is the second body found outdoors this week. Police are not making a connection between the two investigations.
