Alaska State Troopers have identified the body that was found in Quinhagak Monday afternoon as that of 25-year-old Lisa Johnson. She had been a missing person since February 2, when it was reported to the Department of Public Safety’s Missing Persons Clearinghouse.
Johnson’s body was located off a trail near the end of the new runway in the village. Troopers yesterday secured the surrounding area and have been working with the Alaska Bureau of Investigation.
The body will be sent to Anchorage for an autopsy to determine the cause and manner of death.
Troopers say that the ABI investigators will stay in Quinhagak to advance the investigation.
