WISCONSIN RAPIDS, Wis. (AP) -- Authorities say a man found dead in his vehicle in Wisconsin Rapids suffered from hypothermia.

Police say 55-year-old Jeffrey Nash may have been in his vehicle in his garage for four days to a week before he was found by a relative. Authorities say Nash experienced some sort of medical issue and couldn't get back into his house.

Wood County Coroner Garry Kronstedt tells the Daily Tribune Media that Nash apparently passed out in his vehicle, then suffered hypothermia. He was found Wednesday night.
