  • Case History

    The victim's remains were found buried along a power line in a heavily wooded area, one mile south of South Eklutna Lake Road near mile post two in Eklutna. She had been stabbed in the back.

    In 1984, a local baker named Robert Hansen listed her among the 17 to 21 women he admitted to killing in and around Anchorage between 1971 to 1983. He said she was his first victim, but didn't know her name. Hansen said that she was a topless dancer or a prostitute. He killed her when she tried to escape as he was taking her to his home.

    The victim had no identification and could not be matched to a missing persons report. Hansen said the woman might have said she or her family lived in Kodiak. Troopers believe she may have come to Alaska from Washington or California.

    She has been dubbed "Eklutna Annie."
