The remains of the teen that jumped into the slough in front of Alakanuk on last Wednesday evening have been recovered by searchers on Sunday evening, troopers revealed.
19-year-old Clyde Edmund Jr of that community had jumped into the slough and then failed to surface early Wednesday morning. Search and Rescue immediately initiated a search and Emmonak-based troopers were notified. But that search was unsuccessful.
Edmund’s remains were recovered at approximately 6:30 pm on Sunday evening. His remains are being transported to the State Medical Examiner’s office in Anchorage for autopsy. His next of kin have been notified of this newest development.
