The former head of the National Energy Technology Laboratory has been found dead.
In November a Pittsburgh grand jury indicted Cugini on obstruction of justice charges.
Cugini became NETL's director in 2010, and resigned on Oct. 11. No reason was given for the resignation.
The technology lab works to produce affordable energy and enhance energy security. The lab has research offices in West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Texas, Oregon and Alaska.
