ANCHORAGE — Tips started flowing in Friday after Anchorage homicide investigators appealed to the public for information on two people found dead or dying at a scenic overlook on the city’s west side.
A person walking a dog below the Point Woronzof parking lot, which overlooks Cook Inlet, found a dead woman’s body and called police Thursday morning.
An hour later, police discovered a seriously injured man nearby. He was taken to a hospital, where he died.
Police identified the woman as Selena Annette Mullenax, 19, and the man as Foriegnne Aubert-Morissette, 20, who went by the nickname “Onie.”
Investigators have not said how they believe Mullenax and Aubert-Morissette died and are awaiting the results of autopsies.
Police are seeking witnesses with information about the victims’ activities and the circumstances of their deaths. Authorities also want to know if they had a relationship.
The Point Woronzof parking lot is on a bluff that a bike trail crosses. A trail from the lot leads to the beach, a popular route for walking.
The parking lot is near one of the busiest runways of Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport, and passenger and cargo jets can frequently be seen close up on their final approaches to the airport.
