Preliminary autopsy results show a man found dead in Alvarado likely froze to death.

50-year-old Roy Gustofson's body was found on December 13th outside of a home in Alvarado. A neighbor found Gustofson's body in the snow, after investigating what he thought was just a crumpled up bag.

Marshall County Sheriff John Novacek says Gustofson had been out with friends on December 10th. When friends went inside an Alvarado home, Gustofson disappeared from the car they had been in.

Novacek says they are still waiting on toxicology reports to determine how much alcohol was in Gustofson's system at the time he died.
