Authorities are working to identify a suspect responsible for Faith Rogers’ death, according to Juneau Police Department spokesperson Erann Kalwara.
The 55-year-old Juneau woman was discovered near Kaxdigoowu Héen Dei, also known as Brotherhood Bridge Trail, on Wednesday, Sept. 21, prompting a homicide investigation by the Juneau Police Department.
Kalwara said in a Friday afternoon email that JPD is working with the State Crime Lab and the Medical Examiner’s office to identify a suspect and is continuing to accept information from the public related to activity on the trail or other information that may impact the investigation.

Kalwara stated the police have yet to receive the final autopsy report. JPD has not yet announced a cause of death.
In a previous email to the Empire, Kalwara said an autopsy was scheduled for Friday, Sept. 23 at the Medical Examiner’s Office in Anchorage. She said autopsy results often take 6-8 weeks, but stated preliminary results may come sooner depending on how the examination goes.
She stated JPD encourages the public to consider that they could come in contact with the person responsible for Faith Roger’s death due to the unsolved status of the case.
“Personal safety precautions such as being aware of surroundings (not distracted by gadgets), traveling on well-known, well lit routes, traveling in pairs or groups and immediately leaving uncomfortable or potentially unsafe situations are always good ideas,” she stated.
