The caller stated that an injured male was still on scene and the other party had left the area. According to a Deputy Police Chief Josh Dossett, when officers arrived they discovered Aaron B. Dixon, 31 years of age, had received multiple stab wounds to the area of his upper body. A thirteen inch kitchen style knife with an eight inch blade was found at the scene covered in blood. Officers performed CPR on Dixon until he was transported to the Peacehealth Ketchikan Medical Center by Emergency Medical Services, where he was later pronounced dead.
Dixon’s family was contacted and notified of his death.
Based on the investigation, Darrell T. Ryan, 38 years of age, was developed as a suspect. Officers contacted Ryan at a residence in the 1100 block of Woodland Avenue, at approximately 1:30 AM Saturday morning.
Quoting Dossett's January 16th press release, Ryan stated that he had stabbed Dixon during an altercation at the residence because he had felt threatened. Ryan was placed under arrest for Murder in the Second Degree and transported to the Ketchikan Correctional Center where he was booked accordingly and held without bail.
An autopsy will be conducted of Dixon by the State Medical Examiner’s office in Anchorage.
