MOUNTAIN VILLAGE- Alaska State Troopers say a 57-year-old Mountain Village woman suspected of drinking too much homemade liquor died in her sleep.
   

Sgt. Aaron Mobley says Ramona Rose Waskey was last seen alive at about 2 a.m. Monday. She was reported dead about 10 hours later. Troopers think Waskey may have aspirated the contents of her stomach, which clogged her airway.
   
Mountain Village is a Yupik community of about 830 people and banned the sale and importation of alcohol in 1984. City Mayor Joyce Brown-Rivers says residents voted down a proposal to lift the ban in 2010.
