I take issue with reporter Nicole Klauss’s story, which graced the front page of the May 2 issue of the Kodiak Daily Mirror. She is incorrect when she wrote that the Carlos Medina death is the only unsolved homicide in the history of the Kodiak Police Department. July 15, 2012, will mark the 30th anniversary of the stabbing death of fisherman Tom Carbine. He was killed in the parking lot of the Beachcomber. He was a fisherman (on the Shaman?) who was originally from Maryland. Killer never found!
On March 28, 1986, Laura Henderson-Ibach went missing and was never found.
On July 19, 1998, Jonnie Renee White went missing and was never found.

Editor’s note: Two men served jail time in connection with the Henderson-Ibach disappearance after the Kodiak Police Department investigated. The White and Carbine cases were considered in the jurisdiction of the Alaska State Troopers.
