BLOOMINGBURG -

An autopsy performed on a Bloomingburg man found just feet from his house shows he died from hypothermia and an underlying cardiac issue on Thursday.

Police say 70-year-old Stephen Warner suffered from some sort of cardiac emergency inside his car, fell trying to get out and then died in the cold weather overnight.

State police found Warner's body Thursday in a ditch on Larson Road, with his car found nearby. Police believe Warner was stricken around 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday and was ultimately unable to get help.

The area is rural with only a few houses on the road. It's not clear who found Larson's body.
