Dawson Paukan, age 20, was stabbed to death last night in St. Mary’s.
The Alaska State Troopers were alerted to a disturbance at around 3:00 a.m. today. They were told that Paukan had been stabbed in what is believed to have been an alcohol-fueled altercation. He was taken to the local clinic and succumbed to his injuries.
Paukan’s next of kin has been notified and the Troopers have yet to name a suspect in the case. Their investigation is ongoing.
