YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, Wyo. — Yellowstone National Park officials say an autopsy has determined that a man whose body was found on the shore of a lake died of hypothermia.
The men were on a four-night backcountry trip and reported overdue. Park officials said Wednesday they will continue to look for Crumbo as conditions allow. A vacant campsite was found on the lake’s south side.
Shoshone Lake averages 48 degrees, a temperature that can be deadly within half an hour.
