Seeking justice after loss of a loved one in Alaska

It is difficult to fathom the shock and horror associated with learning that a family member has suffered an unexpected death. Those who have suffered the loss of a loved one in Alaska may relate to the grief endured by families in similar circumstances. When a death was caused by an act of violent crime,  sorrow may be accompanied by anger and a strong desire for justice.

A recent tragedy occurred that involved a man who is well known in his  community. Apparently, he is a former lawmaker from another state. There has been speculation that the man has struggled with alcohol addiction in the past. In fact, when he was married, he was accused of domestic violence when his wife at the time called for help after reportedly being beaten by her husband. The husband then locked himself in a room with their children, which ultimately led to his arrest.

Currently, the same man is being accused of murder. Although an investigation remains ongoing, it seems that he admitted to shooting another man. Authorities had received a call from a handheld radio that a shooting had occurred near a lakeside cabin. When officers arrived, they saw the dead body of a man lying underneath an outdoor table who appeared to have been shot in the head.

The wife of the deceased was recently present in the same Alaska courtroom as the accused gunman. She said she would like answers as to why her husband was killed. It is understandable that one who has suffered the loss of a loved one under violent circumstances would want answers regarding the events that led to the family member's death. An attorney experienced in wrongful death cases would be able to help an immediate family member pursue such issues through the legal system.
