On 12/3/19, the Alaska State Troopers received a request for a welfare check on two children in the Village of Venetie. The request was based off of information received that two children arrived at a community members house suffering from cold injuries. The temperature in Venetie at the time was -31F. Troopers chartered an aircraft to the village. Julie Peter, 37 years old of Venetie, was arrested on one count of Endangering the Welfare of a Minor in the First Degree as a result of the investigation which revealed she deserted a five year old and 18 month old in her home with no adult supervision.
