ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Alaska corrections officials say an autopsy shows that the April death of a 24-year-old inmate was the result of natural causes.

Department of Corrections spokeswoman Sherrie Daigle says Amanda Kernak’s “manner of death was found to be from natural causes secondary to complications of severe liver disease.”

KTUU (https://is.gd/6REsOG) says the department is not releasing any more details.

Kernak was found dead in her cell April 10 at the Hiland Mountain Correctional Center in Eagle River.

Her death came less than a week after inmate Davon Mosley died because of bleeding ulcers at the Anchorage jail April 4.

Another inmate, 24-year-old Mark Bolus, died May 13, two days after hanging himself with bed sheets at the Anchorage jail.
