- NOME, Alaska (AP) - The mother of a man murdered in Anchorage, possibly by convicted killer Joshua Wade, wants closure for her son. Arlene Soxie of Nome tells radio station KNOM that the hurt doesn't get any easier, even 15 years after the death of her son, 30-year-old Henry Ongtowasruk. She said she wants justice for her son. Wade is serving a life sentence after acknowledging killing two women in Anchorage. He bargained information about three other deaths in order to get a transfer to a federal prison outside Alaska. Investigators said they believe Wade is referring to the unsolved murders of Ongtowasruk in 1999 and 38-year-old John Michael Martin in 1994. Wade also claimed he killed another man the same night he killed one of the women.
