He was awaiting trial on charges related to alleged drug trafficking and illegal firearm possession. He was 43 years old.

At this time, the cause of death isn’t known.

Obviously the details surrounding this situation are incredibly limited and we don’t know much at all. In fact, other than the report that Siavii was found dead, there aren’t any other details.

Whenever anyone is in prison awaiting major charges, their life has taken some unfortunate turns. Dying in prison is a whole different level.

Hopefully, it wasn’t a violent or malicious situation that cost him his life.

Keep checking back for more details on this developing situation as we have them. It sounds like an unfortunate situation all the way around.
