Tioga death might be case of exposure to cold

TIOGA, N.D. — Authorities are investigating whether a man found dead in the northwestern North Dakota city of Tioga died of exposure to the cold.

The body of the man estimated to be in his 40s or 50s was found Monday beneath a motor home parked near a bar. Authorities say there are no immediate signs of foul play and early indications are that the man died from exposure.

His body has been sent to the state medical examiner's office in Bismarck for an autopsy. Authorities did not immediately release his name.
