ST. GERMAIN, Wis. (AP) -- Authorities in Vilas County say a man found dead outside his home apparently froze to death.

Sheriff's officials say 49-year-old Wade Willey was found frozen to the ground outside his St. Germain house Saturday evening. Deputies say Willey was last seen about 1 a.m. Saturday and that alcohol may have been a factor in his death.

The sheriff's department and county coroner are investigating.
