Charging documents detail the events surrounding the murder of 19-year-old Cynthia Hoffman, alleging the teenager accused of killing her blacked out and burned the gun he used to commit the crime.
Hoffman was reported missing by her family on Monday. Based on information from one of Hoffman's friends, her family told police that she was last seen at the Polar Bear Playground at Russian Jack Springs Park on Sunday afternoon. Police now know that was false; made up by 16-year-old Kayden McIntosh to mislead Hoffman's family and investigators.
According to Anchorage Police Department spokesperson MJ Thim, the turning point in the case was when officers talked with the mother of one of the friends Hoffman was with when she was killed. The mother told police that she overheard her daughter, identified by police as an adult woman, say that Hoffman was shot and pushed into the water.
