Man charged with kidnapping, killing woman found dead in Big Lake
Alaska State Troopers have identified the man charged in the death of 57-year-old Dolly Hampton, whose remains were found April 3 in a remote area of Big Lake
Adam Drew, 24, faces murder and kidnapping counts in her 2018 killing.
Drew was indicted Friday by a Palmer grand jury for two counts of second-degree murder, plus one count each of first-degree murder, kidnapping and weapons misconduct, troopers said in an online dispatch Tuesday.
Hampton had been reported missing Dec. 6. Court records list the alleged date of her death as Dec. 5.
“After several months of investigation by [five AST units], the investigation determined Drew was responsible for her kidnapping and death,” troopers wrote. “Drew has been incarcerated on separate, unrelated charges since 1/3/19.”
Investigators determined last month that Hampton’s death was a homicide, saying the suspect was in custody without identifying Drew.
Drew is scheduled to be arraigned in Palmer court Wednesday afternoon on the charges relating to Hampton's death.
