Juneauites are weighing in on the future of downtown this month through a series of walking tours. The second tour was supposed to cover vehicles, parking and pedestrians, but the conversation shifted to homelessness.
“To the world and all concerned: This is to officially notify you that Eric and Pam Bealer, by their own choice and free will, have committed suicide,” the note said. “We have gone to some effort to hide our bodies, as we do not want them found. Please do not waste time and money looking. It would serve no purpose. We are gone, leave us to our peace.”
The plaintiffs maintain a person identified only as “Jessie Doe” showed up inebriated after hours in January 2018 and was not turned away because of gender. The lawsuit says that constitutional principles of freedom of religion are at stake.
