Delbert Huber, the convicted murderer who was interviewed in connection with the 25-year-old disappearance of Jacob Wetterling, died of natural causes, WCCO reports.

The Ramsey County Medical Examiner ruled Huber died in prison of natural causes. He died of complications of a perforated gastric ulcer, WCCO says.

In June, authorities rekindled the investigation into the 1989 disappearance of Wetterling, who was 11 years old when he was taken by a masked man along a road in St. Joseph, Minnesota. That investigation led authorities to Huber, who from prison denied having any connection with Wetterling's disappearance.

Huber died June 11 at age 83, just a few days after investigators interviewed him.

Huber was sentenced to more than 30 years in prison in the fall of 2012 after pleading guilty to second-degree murder in the shooting death of Timothy Larson of Albertville.
