A man who appears to have been in the middle of illegally dumping concrete blocks in a pull-out near Eklutna was found dead this week, according to Anchorage police.
Birchwood resident Lewis Raymond Holmes, 59, was discovered slumped in the bed of his Ford pickup Monday afternoon by a motorist who spotted it near the 13000 block of Eklutna Lake Road a day earlier, police Lt. Paul Honeman said.
There were concrete blocks in the bed with Holmes and others had been removed, he said. Police think Holmes may have died from a heart attack during the exertion, he said.
The state medical examiner is conducting an autopsy, though foul play is not suspected, Honeman said.
