A law enforcement dive team on Monday discovered what authorities believe to be the body of Samantha Koenig -- the 18-year-old abducted from a Midtown Anchorage coffee stand on Feb. 1, Anchorage Police Chief Mark Mew said. It's a grim development in a kidnapping case that gripped Anchorage for two months. The body was found in Matanuska Lake, off the Glenn Highway, Mew said. An autopsy will be conducted to confirm the identity, he said. "Investigators believe that Samantha died within hours of the abduction, and we are continuing to investigate these facts," Mew said, reading from a written statement to a crowd of reporters outside police headquarters. He said police are confident they have the person responsible in custody and that the person acted alone.

He must have cut a hole in the ice to dispose of her body, or used someone else’s ice-fishing hole.

Ditto. Fight for all you’re worth, yell, scream , make noise, run away if you can but certainly don’t make it easy for your attacker. Remember Admiral William F. “Bull’’ Halseys maxim:”Hit hard, hit fast, hit often’’.

I bet this isn’t something that happens in Anchorage a lot. But then I bet people in Alaska know how to take care of a lot of situations without “bothering” the police. All that open space...

Take him out behind the snow mound and...afterall, It’s normal to hear gun shots in Alaska.

What we have today is a theraputic society that puts our criminals to sleep peacefully like a rabid dog. We need to put a little harshness in our punishments again which can act as a deterrent by putting some fear in these crooks.

My idea for executions would be to tie the feet of the convicted murderer(assuming we know for a fact he/she is guilty)to a anchor point buried in the ground, then tie his arms to a catapult and release the catapult upon the time set for the execution. That would certainly put a little fear into the hearts of anyone thinking about killing another human. The executions would be broadcast on TV also.

Might sound a little inhumane but on the other hand I have no sympathy for anyone who kills another human. We could think of something more gruesome for child killers.
