May 19, 2017

(ANCHORAGE, Alaska) On May 16, 2017, 21 year old Victor Sibson was indicted for causing the death of 22 year old Brittanymae Haag on April 19, 2017 at the residence they shared on Lake Otis Parkway in Anchorage. The grand jury indicted Sibson for murder in the second degree.

At approximately 2:22 a.m. on April 19, 2017, the Anchorage Police Department responded to a 911 call from a male who reported that he shot himself. Officers responded to an apartment complex on Lake Otis Parkway and found Sibson, who had a gunshot wound to the head. Officers also found Haag lying on the floor with a significant amount of blood on her chest. Haag was breathing when the officers arrived so she was transported to Providence Alaska Medical Center. She was pronounced dead at approximately 2:51 a.m.

Sibson has not been arrested. Following his indictment, an arrest warrant was issued in the amount of $250,000 cash or corporate and a court-approved third party custodian. Over the past two days, the Anchorage Police Department has attempted to find Sibson so he could be remanded to the Anchorage Jail.

The Anchorage Police Department and the Anchorage District Attorney’s Office are seeking the help of the community in locating Sibson. Those with information about Sibson’s whereabouts should contact the Anchorage Police Department at 786-8900 or make an anonymous report to Anchorage Crime Stoppers at http://www.anchoragecrimestoppers.com or 561-STOP (7867).

If convicted at trial, Sibson faces a sentence of 15 to 99 years in prison for the murder in the second degree. A defendant’s sentence is determined by the judge who must consider the circumstances of the offense, the impact on the victim(s) and the community, and the potential for rehabilitation of the defendant. The charges in the indictment are only allegations and are not evidence of guilt. The defendant is presumed innocent and is entitled to a fair trial at which the prosecution must prove his guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
