WISCONSIN RAPIDS, Wis. — 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 (http://wrtnews.co/1iyai2g ) that Nash apparently passed out in his vehicle, then suffered hypothermia. He was found Wednesday night.
