Long before slaying at assisted living home, court saw accused killer as a danger

 


The state of Alaska was struggling to figure out what to do with Gilbert Nashookpuk years before police say he called 911 to say he’d killed his caregiver at a South Anchorage assisted living home earlier this month.

Nashookpuk, originally from Point Hope, had been dealt a difficult set of life circumstances.

He had a developmental disability and was “borderline functioning,” according to testimony by a public guardian in court documents. He had been diagnosed with fetal alcohol spectrum disorder. He suffered from seizures and had anger management and alcohol problems, the court testimony said.
