ANCHORAGE (KTUU) - An Alaska woman was found dead after being reportedly strangled, and now authorities are searching for the man who they believe is responsible for killing her.
Just before 1 a.m. on Monday, Alaska State Troopers took a report of a dead body at a residence on Yankovitch Road in Fairbanks.
Inside, authorities found 69-year-old Trisha Pearson of Fairbanks, reportedly strangled to death after being beaten.
Investigators say Patrick Marsh, age 25, reportedly killed Pearson, and stole her Jeep Cherokee from the home. That Jeep was later located abandoned in the area of Hamilton Acres.
Now, an arrest warrant has been issued for Marsh for Murder in the First Degree. AST is requesting assistance from the public in locating Marsh. If anyone knows of his whereabouts, please contact AST at 907-451-5100.
