ANCHORAGE, Alaska (KTUU) - Alaska State Troopers have identified a woman whose remains were found near Willow.

Wednesday, an update to a trooper dispatch was released and identified the woman as Arnoldine Simone Hill, 26, of Hooper Bay.

Troopers said they received information on Saturday about a body north of Willow near milepost 81 of the Parks Highway. The case is being investigated as a homicide.

On Friday, troopers said an autopsy confirmed that her death was a homicide. In an update to the dispatch, troopers said she was last seen on Dec. 10, 2020 in Midtown Anchorage.

Troopers say they have been investigating Hill’s death since Jan. 9 when her body was found. Since she was never reported as a missing person but had not been seen since the month prior, troopers are asking for the public’s help with information about her death.

Anyone with information about Hill’s death is asked to contact AST at (907) 352-5401.
