9/30/13 State is reviewing application to overturn convictions of "Fairbanks Four;" Alaska's on-line health insurance market to go live; Mat-Su voters to decide on 5% alcohol sales tax
Anchorage, AK – State Department of Law officials are reviewing new evidence in the case of four Alaska Native men convicted of a 1997 murder. Two of the four confessed to the murder back then. Now another man, William Holmes, has stepped forward to confess. The Tanana Chiefs Conference, a regional tribal non-profit organization, has offered a $35,000 reward for evidence leading to exoneration of the four. TCC hasn't decided whether, the reward would go to Holmes, who is serving double life sentences for other murders, if the "Fairbanks Four" were freed.
An on-line market for health care insurance is due to go live Tuesday.
Matanuska-Susitna Borough voters will decide tomorrow on a 5% alcohol sales tax, a transportation initiative, and two Assembly seats.
