Woman’s body found in Airport Heights outdoor death
A woman who had been hospitalized last week was found dead outdoors Tuesday in the Airport Heights area off 15th Avenue, Anchorage police said.
The body of 35-year-old Sherry Tschoepl was discovered at about 11:15 a.m. on the 1500 block of Charter Circle, according to police spokesman MJ Thim. No obvious signs of trauma were found on her body, and no foul play is suspected.
“She was lying on the ground not breathing; she was declared dead,” Thim said Friday. “She had recently left a local hospital, against medical advice, on [Sept.] 21st.”
Tschoepl’s body will be sent to the state medical examiner’s office for an autopsy to determine her cause of death, Thim said.
