Preliminary investigative findings indicate that the incident in Chugiak involving the two deceased persons is a homicide suicide.  

At 4:03 a.m. 40-year-old Nita Kilapsuk called Police Dispatch to report a verbal argument with her boyfriend 49-year-old Michael Hagood. During the call, Kilapsuk told Dispatch that she wanted to leave the residence but Hagood would not let her and she reported that he had a gun.
