Preliminary autopsy results for a 43-year-old man who died last week after deputies discovered him partially frozen in a snowbound vehicle just north of Moorhead show severe hypothermia and frostbite contributed to his death.
An exact cause of death is not yet known and will not be available until the full results are in, including a toxicology test, Clay County Sheriff Bill Bergquist said.
The preliminary results also showed Craig S. Glock had medical problems, Bergquist said.
Glock was discovered inside a vehicle last Thursday morning about 8:45 a.m. His limbs appeared to be frozen solid and his heartbeat was nearly undetectable. He died about 6 p.m. that night.
