    City of Juneau, Alaska
    Juneau, Alaska, Mayor Greg Fisk was found dead in his home Monday. He was elected mayor last month.

    Greg Fisk, the new mayor of Juneau, Alaska, was found dead in his home, according to police.

    Officials say they received a 911 call that there was a dead person at Fisk’s residence.

    Police wouldn’t comment on the cause of death, and haven’t determined whether his death was considered suspicious.

    Juneau Police Department spokeswoman Erann Kalwara said in a statement that investigators were "aware of rumors that an assault occurred in connection with Fisk's death" but described them as "speculation."

    Fisk, 70, was a longtime civic activist and served on numerous Juneau boards and commissions over the past decade. He was elected mayor of Juneau last month.
