"Police investigate death of Alaska’s capital city mayor" Associated Press  December 02, 2015

ANCHORAGE, Alaska — The newly elected mayor of Alaska’s capital city had suffered injuries when was found dead, but police are awaiting autopsy results to announce a possible cause of death, officials said Tuesday.

The adult son of Stephen ‘‘Greg’’ Fisk, 70, found the mayor’s body Monday afternoon and alerted police.

Juneau Police Department spokeswoman Erann Kalwara said Tuesday the cause of death remains unknown.

‘‘It’s not clear what the cause of those injuries are,’’ she said. She could not comment on the nature of the injuries, she said.

Fisk lived alone. There was no sign of forced entry into Fisk’s home above Juneau’s downtown.

‘‘We haven’t ruled anything out yet,’’ she said. Police are hoping the state medical examiner in Anchorage will complete the autopsy in a couple of days, she said.

Fisk, a fisheries consultant, handily defeated incumbent Merrill Sanford in the Oct. 6 election to become mayor.
