- FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) - The body of a 52-year-old man has been found at the site of a bridge under construction in Fairbanks. Police say the man may have been killed in a fall. The man's name was not immediately released because his next of kin had not been notified. Construction workers found the body at 7 a.m. Sunday at the site of a new bridge being built over Noyes Slough on Illinois Street. The man was found on his back about 20 feet below the new bridge. Police say it wasn't clear whether he had fallen from the bridge or the bank of the slough. The site was blocked off by fences but police Sgt. Doug Welborn tells the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner it would not have been difficult to get past them.
