Police ID body found in Flagstaff

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. — Authorities have released the identity of a woman whose
body was found near a Flagstaff hotel last weekend.

Flagstaff police said she is 28-year-old Alison Anders and the cause and
circumstances of her death still are being investigated.

However, police said it doesn’t appear to be a homicide and indications are the
woman died from an accidental overdose.

Anders was last seen panhandling with an unidentified man around 7:30 a.m.
Saturday near Interstate 40.

Her body was found Sunday morning in an area behind the Little America Hotel.

Police said 52-year-old Joseph Kachel and 57-year-old Gary Wangler are being
held in the Coconino County Jail on $25,000 cash-only bond on suspicion of
abandonment and concealment of a dead body.

It was still unclear Wednesday if either man has a lawyer.
