- SEWARD, Alaska (AP) - A 29-year-old man suspected of eluding Alaska State Troopers has been found dead at the bottom of a cliff near Seward. Troopers say a trooper tried to conduct a traffic stop on a mini four-wheeler Saturday night, but the vehicle continued down the road. Other troopers responded and the four-wheeler was found abandoned. Troopers say that shortly before 11:30 p.m. Sunday, campers in the Stoney Creek RV park called Soldotna troopers to report that someone matching the description of the suspect was walking down a hill near the RV park. Troopers and a police dog searched the area. Troopers say Patrick Wallace of Houston, Alaska, was found dead at the bottom of a 100-foot cliff. An autopsy was planned by the state medical examiner.
