UPDATE: Second victim ID'd in Valley of the Moon killings

By  | 


Anchorage police identified the second person killed in a pair of apparent homicides discovered at Valley of the Moon Park as Kevin S. Turner, 34.

The investigation into the deaths of Turner and Bryant C. "Brie" De Husson, 25, is ongoing. A passerby spotted De Husson on a bike trail at the park at about 2 a.m. Sunday. Police found Turner's body soon after.

Police have refused to say how the two were killed and have released few details in the case.

Asked if police have determined what, if any, is the connection between the two victims, department spokeswoman Renee Oistad said APD would offer no additional information at this time.

A 25-year-old Anchorage activist was the first of two apparent homicide victims discovered early Sunday morning in Valley of the Moon Park, police say.

An investigator identified the body, first reported by a passerby at 1:43 a.m., as that of Bryant C. De Husson. A second body was found nearby by police at 2:06 a.m.

Police know that man’s identity but have not released it to the public pending notification of his family.

Police are working to determine the nature of the connection, if any, between the two victims. A department spokeswoman would not say how far apart the bodies were found, other than that De Husson was on a bicycle trail.

The two had died "recently," the spokeswoman said, but police have not determined the precise time of death and would not talk about the manner of death.
