Nevada Man Dies At Logging Site Near Wrangell

A Nevada man was found dead this week at a logging site 12 miles west of Wrangell.

Alaska State Troopers were notified around 5 p.m. Tuesday that David Fussell, age 55, died on Zarembo Island.

The cause of death is unknown. Fussell’s body has been sent to the state medical examiner for an autopsy. According to an Alaska State Troopers dispatch, no foul play is suspected.

Troopers spokesperson Beth Ipsen says there are no outward signs that Fussell’s death was related to a logging incident.

Ipsen says workers at the site told troopers they found Fussell unresponsive, but still alive, in the passenger seat of a truck. They performed CPR, but Fussell died shortly after.
