FBI helping in investigation of homicide recorded on video

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — The FBI will help Anchorage police with the investigation of a homicide recorded with photos and video.

Anchorage television station KTVA reports the FBI is providing investigative and technical assistance in the investigation of the death of 30-year-old Kathleen Henry. Her body was found Oct. 2 along a highway.

Forty-eight-year-old Brian Steven Smith is charged with first-degree murder.

Smith’s attorney is assistant public defender Daniel Lowery and he said by email Tuesday he does not comment on pending cases.

A woman on Sept. 30 told police she found a memory card with evidence of a crime.

The card had photos and videos of a man beating and strangling a woman.

Detectives linked a voice on the videos to Smith from a previous investigation.

Smith is originally from South Africa.
