The body of a 21-year-old Sitka man, Noel Gangle, was found at about 7 pm on Sunday, December 2 near a cabin at Seven Fathom Bay, about 22 miles south of Sitka.
A statement from Sitka police says the cause of death appears to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Gangle was part of a four-person hunting party. Three of them left the cabin to go hunting, and Gangle stayed in camp. When the hunters returned, they couldn’t find Gangle at first, but then found his body in a nearby wooded area.
His body is being flown to Anchorage for further investigation.
