Posted: Monday, August 25, 2008

ANCHORAGE - Anchorage police are investigating the death of a man whose body was found in Chester Creek.

A man flagged down officers just after 6 p.m. Friday and said he'd found a body in the water near A Street.

Police Sgt. Pablo Paiz said the body was caught in a tangle of debris in an eddy.

Police identified the man but withheld his name pending family notification.

Paiz said the victim hadn't been dead long and the body showed no obvious trauma.

An autopsy was scheduled.

Paiz said the man was not homeless but alcohol could have been a factor in the death.
