Another body of a homeless man was found in a car in downtown Anchorage, the twelfth body since May, reports Megan Holland in the Anchorage Daily News. Friends say the man was friendly and known as “Bart” at a local shelter he frequented. Police do not suspect foul play in this death, but are still investigating. They attribute all but one of the twelve deaths to chronic drinking.
