Hypothermia killed a Green Bay man who was found outside Wednesday without any shoes, an autopsy has found.

Earl T. Reed, 53, died of exposure to the cold, Brown County Medical Examiner Al Klimek said. Reed was found about 6:54 a.m. lying on the ground by an office building near Main Street and Deckner Avenue on the city's east side.

The low temperature that morning was 21 degrees and police have said he lived near the location where he was found. No obvious signs of trauma have been reported.

It likely will take about two weeks for test results to determine if Reed had drugs or alcohol in his system when he died.

Reed is at least the second person to die of hypothermia this year in Green Bay.

Brian Hicks, 38, was found dead Jan. 21 near his home on East Shore Circle. Authorities ruled that Hicks died of hypothermia after he was unable to open the door of his east-side home. The low that morning was 8 degrees below zero.
