BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The Morton County Sheriff’s Office has announced foul play wasn’t a factor in the death of a 51-year-old man.

According to Morton County Sheriff Kyle Kirchmeier, an autopsy determined Victor Newberry died of hypothermia due to prolonged exposure to cold outdoor weather. He was found dead in his vehicle on Dec. 27 near Glen Ullin.

Kirchmeier says the incident has been classified as an unattended death and is now closed. He says alcohol contributed to the man’s death.

The sheriff says Newberry lived in Glen Ullin but was new to North Dakota.
