A homicide victim, now identified as a confidential informant for the Anchorage Police VICE Unit, was killed just days after evidence of undercover drug buys was turned over to a suspect's defense attorney. His mother says he was never warned his identity had been compromised.
On Oct. 19, APD announced the discovery of a body on Oct. 17 in the area of the Eklutna Power Plant. The victim was later identified by APD as 35-year-old David Cargill, who died of multiple gunshot wounds to the upper body.
Little information was made public about the circumstances surrounding Cargill's death until federal charges were filed in a connected case Friday.
