Engineer dies in Sitka


The Australian engineer of the 120-foot M/Y Valkyrie was found dead at the bottom of ANB Harbor in Sitka, Alaska, on Friday, July 12.

John W. Schroeder, 33, left Pioneer Bar across the street from the harbor near midnight Thursday and was last seen going down the ramp to ANB Harbor, but he never reported back onboard the yacht, according to the Sitka Sentinel. About 5 p.m., his crew mates reported him missing.

Police were still investigating in late July.
