BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A state medical examiner’s report says a Bismarck man whose body was found in snow late last year died of hypothermia.

The report by Dr. William Massello III dated last month lists the cause of Clinton Kaseman’s death as hypothermia due to exposure to subfreezing temperatures.

The body of the 52-year-old Kaseman was found near the Missouri River on Dec. 30, beneath an Interstate 94 bridge.

Massello performed the autopsy. The Bismarck Tribune reports the medical examiner says Kaseman’s death was accidental. Temperatures at the time of Kaseman’s exposure were reportedly as low as 21 degrees below zero (29 below Celsius).

Kaseman had been receiving services from Enable Inc., an agency that serves individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Police say he was known to go for long walks.
