Anchorage police investigate outdoor deaths of 3 men; foul play not suspected


ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Anchorage police say no foul play is suspected in the deaths of three men found in separate outside locations.

The body of 23-year-old Destry Murphy was found Wednesday night in woods near Campbell Creek Park at 46th and Folker Street. His family says Murphy suffered from medical issues.

Shortly before midnight Wednesday, a woman reported the death of a 54-year-old friend inside a tent near Valley of the Moon Park.

She told police she had left in the morning and her friend appeared to be sleeping. When she returned, he was not breathing.

Police also are investigating the death of 34-year-old Harry Oxereok Jr., who was found on Third Avenue and Karluk Street next to a chain link fence. He had no known health problems. An autopsy is scheduled.
