The mayor of Juneau, Alaska—who was found dead inside his home on Monday afternoon—died of "natural causes," the state medical examiner has said.

Stephen "Greg" Fisk was elected to Juneau's top office in October. On Monday afternoon, his adult son found him collapsed on the floor of his home in the capital city, where he lived alone.

The preliminary autopsy report struck down rumors that Fisk was killed in an assault.

The findings showed Fisk's external wounds were consistent with an injury from falling or stumbling into objects, the medical examiner in Anchorage said. There was no indication of foul play.

The final autopsy report will include toxicology results and be completed in two to eight weeks.

Assembly member Mary Becker was named acting mayor while the city attorney's office decides how to proceed.
