RIVERTON, Wyo. (AP) - The Fremont County Coroner has ruled that an 18-year-old whose body was found last month south of Riverton died of accidental hypothermia.

The body of Jeffrey C. Brown was found Jan. 28 on the Wind River Indian Reservation.

Coroner Mark Stratmoen said the body was outside and was not near a residence.

Stratmoen tells The Riverton Ranger (https://bit.ly/20uSeuz ) that the victim was inappropriately dressed for the cold weather.

He says no alcohol or drugs were involved.
