TURTLE LAKE, N.D. (AP) — Authorities say they've determined an 88-year-old Turtle Lake man found dead on a rural road near the central North Dakota town died of exposure. No foul play is suspected.

McLean County Sheriff Don Charging says the body of Richard Dawson was found Saturday by a game warden, and investigators determined he died of exposure to the cold.

Charging says Dawson's vehicle had become stuck, and Dawson didn't have a cell phone.
