Death in Bergman Hotel not considered suspicious

Police say a 54-year-old woman died Tuesday in the Bergman Hotel.


Juneau Police Department spokesman Lt. David Campbell said police and medics responded at about 4:30 p.m. when they received a 911 call from the woman’s fiance, who found her in the room cold and unresponsive.

Paramedics declared her dead at the scene, Campbell said.

The death is not considered suspicious, and no foul play is suspected, Campbell said.

Campbell said the medical examiner’s office in Anchorage declined a request for an autopsy.
