Ketchikan Man Found Dead
March 25, 2013
(SitNews) Ketchikan, Alaska - The body of 44 year old David J. Knapp of Ketchikan was located on the beach close to his residence by Alaska State Troopers. Knapp's body was partially submerged and tangled in an outfall line. Initial investigation by the Troopers led them to believe that Knapp was adjusting his outfall line and may have fallen onto the rocks and drowned.
The Alaska State Troopers received the 911 report of an apparent deceased male on the beach in Whisky Cove at 8:13 am. Alaska State Troopers were transported to the area by a United States Coast Guard safe boat from Station Ketchikan.
With the assistance of Wrangell Police Department the next of kin have been notified. At present, no foul play is suspected.
The state Medical Examiner's officer was contacted and the Knapp's body will be sent to Anchorage for autopsy.
