JPD: Juneau man died from drowning following fall

Posted: November 29, 2011 - 12:02am

A 22-year-old Juneau man who died following an 80-foot fall earlier this month died from drowning, according to an investigation by the Juneau Police Department.

Evan Smith jumped from his window early Sunday morning after police arrived at his apartment near Cordova Street on Douglas Island to investigate a disturbance. Smith, along with two other people, jumped and fled into nearby woods to avoid talking to police, JPD Chief Greg Browning said in an earlier interview with the Empire. He said the officers who responded “weren’t actively pursuing them at the time.”

Smith and his girlfriend, 18-year-old Jamie Vonda fell from a cliff into Kowee Creek. Vonda survived the fall, but was seriously injured. An update on her condition was not available at press time.
