According to a news release from the Juneau Police Department, it was Fisk’s son, Ian Fisk, who discovered the body.

Fisk’s body has been removed from his home and will be sent to Anchorage for an autopsy. Results are expected within several days.

JPD called rumors of an assault “speculation” and said detectives are “actively investigating facts of the incident and all evidence is being preserved and documented.”

City and Borough of Juneau clerk Laurie Sica said the city will issue a press release tomorrow with details on how city government will operate in the mayor’s absence. He’d been on the job for a month. The city’s deputy mayor is assembly member Mary Becker.
