After public death at AFN convention, only hints of the story of man who jumped


Anchorage police on Sunday identified the man who jumped over a third-floor railing one day earlier and fell nearly 60 feet to his death as Anthony Choquette.

Choquette's suicide played out in front of a crowd of adults and children at the end of the annual Alaska Federation of Natives conference at the Dena’ina Civic and Convention Center.

His death has led to anguished grieving as well as questions about the man and his reasons for taking his life so publicly at a gathering where suicide prevention is often a major theme.
