GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - Police have indentified the man found dead outside in frigid weather on Green Bay's east side.

Authorities believe 38-year-old Brian L. Hicks died of environmental hypothermia due to prolonged exposure with inadequate clothing. 

Fox 11 reports neighbors who found him say he had no jacket or shoes on. 

Investigators ruled out trauma or foul play through their examination.

Overnight temperatures Sunday night and Monday morning were below zero degrees.

Police say preliminary toxicology results indicate that alcohol was a factor in Hicks’ death, although complete lab results are not expected for about two weeks. Cops are still trying to figure out exactly where Hicks was leading up to his death.

His vehicle was found at a bar on University Avenue in Green Bay.

Hicks’ body was found just before 8 a.m. Monday outside his home in the 1700 block of East Shore Circle. He lived alone.
