The body of a 57-year old man was found on a trail Thursday between Switzer Village Trailer Park and Dzantik’i Heeni Middle School, according to Juneau police.
Lt. Dave Campbell says the body was discovered by a man walking on the wooded trail. He says the witness called police and took officers to the area.
From the condition, it looks as though the person had probably been there for a while. The preliminary investigation doesn’t show any kind of foul play to the person’s body.
Campbell says the body was identified as Juneau resident Hoyt Edward Galvan.
He says police are investigating the death. Galvan’s body has been sent to the state medical examiner’s office in Anchorage for an autopsy.
