Second suspect now arrested in execution of teen

A second suspect has been arrested in connection with the death of 19-year-old Cynthia Hoffman, pictured above, who was shot execution style near Thunderbird Falls in Chugiak. She had been reported missing on Monday.

Denali Brehmer, age 18, is facing charges of Murder 1 and Evidence Tampering, as well as other charges. Earlier, 16-year-old Kayden McIntosh was arrested in the case.

Cynthia Hoffman was reported missing by a family member on Monday. The family member said that the young woman had been seen by a friend at Polar Bear Park, possibly on Sunday at 4 pm. She was in blue jeans, a hoodie, and tennis shoes.

Detectives believe the family was given false information about Hoffman’s whereabouts and that she was killed — shot in the back of the head after being bound with duct tape.

The victim and her two alleged killers knew each other and friends are reporting that there was a romantic entanglement between them.
