2 killed in apparent murder-suicide in North Pole, troopers say

Alaska State Troopers are investigating two deaths in North Pole that they believe resulted from a murder-suicide.

Troopers responded shortly after midnight Tuesday to a report of two bodies found inside the garage of an Airline Drive home in North Pole. Investigators believe Tana Miller, 44, killed Rona Hooker, 38, before turning a gun on himself. Miller was reportedly suicidal for months leading up to the deaths, troopers said.

Neither of the deceased has a prior criminal record in Alaska, court records show. No one else appears to have been involved in the deaths, troopers said.
