Hunter finds friend dead

Posted: Monday, May 20, 2019 9:00 am

A man found his missing friend dead during a bear hunting trip on Alaska’s Kodiak Island, but said Friday he and another hunting friend initially thought the man had stormed off in frustration as he had done in the past.

Aleksandr Neverov told The Associated Press he found the body of 39-year-old Viacheslav Akimenko on Monday. That was six days after the 39-year-old Delta Junction man went missing at Sturgeon Lagoon when he left his party to go on a hike.
