GALLUP, N.M. (AP) - The body of a Churchrock man has been found outside a building on U.S. Historic Highway 66, possibly a victim of the current cold weather.

The Gallup Independent reports (https://bit.ly/1hoDjlp ) that if it is found that 59-year-old Wesley Yazzie died of exposure, his will be the sixth death during the current weather season.

A final determination will be made once autopsy results are completed.

Gallup Police say the body was found Friday by workers who were shoveling snow. The workers called 911, saying they found a frozen body that was not breathing.
