Crime Scene Is 13 Miles South Of Tok & 112 Miles North of Gakona Junction 


On Monday, April 26th, the Fairbanks dispatch office got a report of a freezer containing human remains in the woods near Mile 112 of the Tok Cutoff.

When Troopers from Tok arrived on the scene, they found a partly buried freezer around 100 feet into the woods off the Tok Cutoff, Troopers said. 

With the help of the Fairbanks General Investigative Unit, Helo 2, the Glennallen State Troopers, and the Tok Department of Transportation, authorities verified that there were human remains in the freezer.

The freezer and its contents were transported to the Anchorage State Medical Examiner's office, and the investigation is ongoing, Troopers said. 

For reference, the location of the freezer was around 3 miles north of Eagle Trail State Recreation Site and the Clearwater Creek Bridge. (The recreation site has 35 campsites and a trailhead on the Old Valdez to Eagle Trail.) 

Eight miles south of the freezer site is the bridge over the Tok River, at Mile 104. 

The town of Tok is 13 miles north of the crime scene, at Mile 125. 

The Tok Cutoff begins at Gakona Junction, which is at Mile 0.
