Troopers Issue Warrant, Seeks Shungnak Man on DV Charges

AST reports that they are still seeking the whereabouts of Shungnak man identified as 43-year-old Sam Horner and that there is now an arrest warrant on the charges of  Domestic Violence III and IV issued for his arrest.

Troopers have been seeking Horner since last Sunday when they responded to the community of Shungnak in reference to an assault there. Their investigation into the incident revealed that Horner had assaulted a family member. 

Troopers looked for, but failed to find Horner in the community. They surmise that he is either hiding there or in the neighboring community of Kobuk 10 miles upriver on the Kobuk River.

Anyone with information as to his whereabouts are asked to contact the Kotzebue AST post at 907-442-3222 (Trooper Tilley).
