Alaska State Troopers are investigating a suspicious death in Kake, a village on Kupreanof Island around 70 miles from Sitka.

Troopers say they received a report Tuesday evening that 19-year-old Jade Williams was found not breathing at home.

Kake Emergency Medical Services responded and transported Williams to the SEARHC Clinic where she was then pronounced deceased.

Troopers report they were unable to respond from Juneau until late afternoon Wednesday, due to poor weather.

The investigation continues.
