Deaths reported at Windfall Lake and Commercial Boulevard

Authorities are reporting two separate deaths in Juneau, one on the 5200 block of Commercial Boulevard and one on Windfall Lake.

Alaska State Troopers report Jacob Lewis of Juneau was thrown from a skiff in Windfall Lake late Friday. Troopers say friends found his body around 7 a.m. Saturday.

Lewis, a 2005 Juneau-Douglas High School graduate, had just turned 28 on Thursday. His family could not be reached at press time.

Separately, the Juneau Police Department reports a 46-year-old woman was found dead in her vehicle on Commercial Boulevard on Thursday afternoon in an apparent suicide. Police say the death was not suspicious. Police have yet to name her.
