Homeless Man Found Dead in Dublin, Coroner Investigating Hypothermia

If hypothermia is the culprit, the Dublin man will be the fifth Bay Area resident in two weeks to die from exposure to the cold.

By Bay City News

A homeless man was found dead in Dublin on Friday, possibly due to exposure to the bitter cold weather impacting the Bay Area.

The man was found and pronounced dead in Dublin around 12:40 p.m. on Friday, an Alameda County coroner's deputy said.

The bureau has yet to determine the unidentified man's cause of death, but may investigate exposure to the cold as a possible cause, the deputy said.

An autopsy will be conducted on Monday. If exposure to the cold did cause the man's death, he would have been the fifth person in the Bay Area to lose his life due to the recent frigid temperatures over the past two weeks.

Four homeless people in Santa Clara County have died due to hypothermia, according to that county's medical examiner's office.
