Burning death of Johnny Druck Wallis still a mystery


Fairbanks Police say they're still seeking information from the public, and their investigation remains on–going in the New Years Day incident that eventually claimed the life of 59–year old Johnny Druck Wallis.
Police say Wallis was seriously burned while sleeping inside the downtown Fairbanks post office on New Year's Day.
Wallis died of his injuries days later at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.
Police are not saying whether or not the case is a criminal matter, however, results from a State Medical Examiner have classified the death as undetermined in nature.
Police say Wallis was found burning in the lobby by someone checking their mail.
The person who found him and others worked to put the fire out before firefighters arrived a few minutes later.
During a press conference last month in downtown Fairbanks, Velma Wallis, the victim's sister, while thanking those helping with the case, said  "someone..knows something."
She told Newscenter 11 "So I am just angry right now I'm angry but I'm also but one side of me knows that I'm angry the other side if I wanted to be angry I can't because these people FNA, Doyon, the fire chief, reverend fisher they banded together and they are showing that Johnny was just not a nameless person. Hhe was a human being like you and I and I say that whatever he did in his like whatever we do in our life we don't deserve to die like this."
