AK - Newly elected Juneau mayor's death a mystery
Police investigate death of Alaska’s capital city mayor
Police in Alaska’s capital city have tentatively ruled out gunshots, drugs or suicide in the death of the newly elected mayor but have not determined whether he died from a natural event or foul play.
Mayor Greg Fisk found dead in his home
As news of Fisk’s death spread, so did rumors. On Facebook and other social media, Juneauites speculated that Fisk had been killed in an assault.
“Juneau Police Department’s aware of the rumors going around that there was an assault … that’s just speculation. We don’t know the cause of death. We’ll have to get the autopsy done,” JPD chief Bryce Johnson said.
As JPD officers complete their documentation of Fisk’s home, Fisk’s body will be flown to Anchorage for examination.
Johnson said an assault is “one of the possibilities out there, but there’s others that could have happened. There could’ve been a fall, there’s lots of things that would cause it.”
