 After A Day Of Little Information, Anchorage Reporters Go Into Court Documents To Try And Find Out What Happened In Point Hope  

16-Year Old Charged With Killing A Man And A Woman – And Seriously Injuring Two Others 


The North Slope Borough and community of Point Hope spent over a day not telling anyone what happened in the small coastal town in northern Alaska – beyond the fact that multiple people had been killed. 

The Troopers had no information to report about the alleged murders in their daily Trooper dispatches on the web, either. 

The nature of the crime was not shared. There were no details. But the mayor of the North Slope Borough assured the public there was no risk to community safety,  the school was closed, and the health department had begun coordinating grief counseling services.

The typical round of information that follows alleged mass murders in a community - who, what, when, how and where - did not surface as a matter of protocol. 

To find out more, by late Monday,  KTUU had apparently gone straight to the "court documents" in a search for more information.  

KTUU reported a 16-year old teenage boy was said to have entered a home with a handgun and then left on a 4-wheeler. 

A man and a woman were found dead at the home, at around 11:35 at night on Sunday. Two other men had serious injuries, the report said. The 16-year old was said to have admitted to the crime. 

Possible motives, relationships between the victims and the youth, the names and identities of the victims and other information was not revealed.
