WASHINGTON — Nicholas Marsh, who was one of several Justice Department officials under investigation for the flawed 2008 prosecution of former Alaska Sen. Ted Stevens, killed himself this weekend.
Marsh was among six Justice Department lawyers under investigation for their handling of Stevens' trial, part of a wide probe into corruption in Alaska politics. Marsh had been reassigned from the elite public integrity section, and had been working on international extraditions.
Marsh, 37, was married and had no children, said his lawyer, Bob Luskin. The Office of the Medical Examiner confirmed his death, but District of Columbia police were unable to provide additional information about the suicide. Luskin, too, could offer few details, other than to say that Marsh died over the weekend.
