Police: Man, 41, Fell Off Deck, Froze to Death

A Livingston County man has been discovered frozen to death outside his home.

The 41-year-old was discovered Thursday morning behind his home in Hamburg Township, about 35 miles west of Detroit, when a co-worker arrived to pick him up.

Hamburg Township Police Chief Steve Luciano tells The Ann Arbor News it appears the man fell off his deck, was injured and died from exposure to the elements sometime overnight.

The National Weather Service reports the temperature in nearby Howell was 7 below zero Thursday morning.

The man's name was not released pending notification of his family. Police say he lived alone, and there are no obvious signs of foul play.
