A Southern Illinois man’s death earlier this week was caused by the cold weather.

Perry County Coroner Paul Searby says autopsy results show 46-year-old Anthony Jones of DuQuoin died of hypothermia. Jones was found by a family member on Tuesday, inside a small building on Linden Street.

Searby says his office is still investigating the death, and toxicology reports are pending.
