New leads in 1993 murder of Alaska Native woman

Authorities have received more than a dozen new tips in the 1993 rape and murder of an Alaska Native woman in Fairbanks.

Sophie Sergie was assaulted and shot on April 26, 1993 at a University of Alaska-Fairbanks dorm. The cold case unit at the Alaska Department of Public Safety made a plea for information last weekend after a review of the evidence led to a new theory.

Sergie was from the Yup'ik village of Pitkas Point. Authorities say solving her case remains a top priority.
