DILLINGHAM (AP) -- Alaska State Troopers in Dillingham are investigating the death of a 23-year-old man in Port Heiden.
Nick Holm died late Friday after an apparent altercation with another individual at a drinking party, troopers said.
Holm was reportedly left face down on the floor following the fight. When attempts were made later in the evening to revive him, it was discovered that he was dead.
No arrests have been made. Troopers said Holm weighed approximately 450 pounds, and it is possible his weight contributed to his death.
Holm's body was taken to the state medical examiner in Anchorage for an autopsy.
