Troopers find body as they look for missing miner near creek

Alaska State Troopers found a severely decomposed human body Saturday in a remote area about 10 miles north of Talkeetna.

Troopers were searching from a helicopter for a missing miner in the area near Clear Creek, a tributary of the Talkeetna River, when they found the body shortly after 6 p.m.

The area is "rugged wilderness" full of mining claims, Sgt. James Helgoe said. He did not know whether the body was that of the missing miner.

The identity of the person is unknown, as is the period of time the person had been dead, according to troopers. The body will be examined by the state medical examiner.

Wow, so many people disappear in Alaska every year, some intentionally, some not. And it seems like every year, someone turns up, dead. I wonder why the bears or ravens, etc. didn't gnaw on the carcass.

Well, at least they recycled.

As to anonymous' comment about Jimmy Hoffa, it does seem like the perfect place to dispose of, erm, unneeded assets.
