Troopers investigated death of Fort Yukon woman

Posted: Friday, November 02, 2001

ANCHORAGE (AP) -- A Fort Yukon woman died alone at her home Wednesday and Alaska State Troopers have requested an autopsy.

Patricia Lynn Alexander, 18, was found not breathing and could not be resuscitated.

Troopers from Fairbanks flew to the community about 140 miles northeast of Fairbanks after Alexander was pronounced dead at the Fort Yukon Clinic.

Trooper spokesman Greg Wilkinson said alcohol is suspected of being a contributing factor in the death.
