Oak Forest Man, 80, Dies of Hypothermia, Cold Exposure
An elderly Oak Forest man who died Sunday marks at least the 21st weather-related death of the season.

Frank Beck, of the 6000 block of Oakland Avenue, died Feb. 16 at Advocate South Suburban Hospital in Hazel Crest at 5:57 p.m., according to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office. 

Autopsy results showed hypothermia, cold exposure and heart disease led to Beck's death, Sun-Times Media reports. 

Last week, a 79-year-old Burbank man died of similar causes. Earlier this month, an  86-year-old Oak Lawn woman died of hypothermia after she was found outside her South Meade Avenue home in the snow.
