Death of Homer Man ‘Suspicious’

A 61-year-old man was found dead on the Poopdeck Trail near Homer last Sunday, and local police say the circumstances are suspicious.


Homer Police Chief, Mark Robl, said the body of Mark Mathews was found by two hikers. While he was confident there is no danger to the public, he wouldn’t say why the death appears suspicious.


Chief Robl said he can’t provide any further details since the investigation is still in its early stages, and wouldn’t say if there were any wounds or signs of foul play.


The body has been sent to the Medical Examiner’s Office in Anchorage for analysis.
