Juneau Mayor Greg Fisk, who was found dead at his home earlier this week, died of natural causes and there is no indication of foul play, police say.
Erann Kalwara, a spokeswoman for the Juneau Police Department, said that an autopsy performed by a state medical examiner in Anchorage showed that Fisk’s death was the result of natural causes.
Kalwara said that the external injuries sustained by the mayor were consistent with an injury due to falling or stumbling into objects. “No foul play is indicated,” she added.
The final autopsy report, which will include toxicology results, is not expected to be completed for 2 to 8 weeks.
Fisk, 70, was found dead on Monday afternoon at his residence in the 400 block of Kennedy Street. He was elected mayor on October 6, defeating incumbent mayor Merrill Sanford with 65.9 percent of the vote. He assumed office on October 20.
