Troopers identify body found on the Yukon River as missing Marshall woman

Traci Fitka
Kimberly Fitka O'Domin was last seen alive on June 15. Her mother, Elizabeth Fitka, and father, David Fitka, hold a portrait of their daughter.

Alaska State Troopers say that a missing woman from the Yukon River village of Marshall has been found dead.

Kimberly Fitka O’Domin’s body was found about 30 miles upriver from Emmonak more than a week ago on June 27, but she wasn’t publicly identified until July 6. Alaska State Troopers, citing the state medical examiner’s office, said that she drowned.

O’Domin’s family and friends have been searching for her since she went missing from the village on June 15. There is no evidence of foul play, according to a trooper report, but law enforcement will continue to investigate the circumstances of her death.

O’Domin’s family has since set up a GoFundMe account to help cover the cost of living expenses for her seven surviving children.
