RIVERTON, Wyo. (AP) - Riverton police say an autopsy shows a 46-year-old man whose body was found on the Central Wyoming College campus in Riverton was intoxicated when he froze to death.

Officials say Dominick Arthur was not associated with the college. Officials say a student basketball player found his body near the Wyoming Public Broadcasting Service office on campus on New Year’s Eve.

Riverton Police Department Capt. Eric Murphy tells the Riverton Ranger (https://tinyurl.com/n6knt6b) investigators believe the man lay down and froze. Investigators say the death was an accident.

The official low temperature in Riverton that night was 21 degrees below zero.
