The Alaska Department of Corrections says Kenneth Manzanares was in the department’s custody, at a facility in Juneau, when he was found unresponsive in his cell Wednesday morning.
The department says life-saving measures were attempted before he was later pronounced dead.
The department says the Alaska State Troopers and state medical examiner’s office review the deaths of individuals in custody.
The department says no foul play is suspected in Manzanares’ death. An email seeking comment was sent to Manzanares’ attorney.
