A man from Lycoming County awaiting his sentencing for illegally entering the U.S. Capitol during the Jan. 6 breach died on July 20.
Mark R. Aungst, 47, of South Williamsport, was declared to have committed suicide by Coroner Charles E. Kiessling Jr., according to PennLive. A gas field well service technician by trade, Aungst is survived by his mother, a daughter, and three siblings.
