Sheriffs: Man froze to death outside St. Germain home

ST. GERMAIN, WI (WTAQ) - A man froze to death just outside his home in far northern Wisconsin, and authorities said alcohol might have been a factor.

Vilas County sheriff's deputies said 49-year-old Wade Willey of St. Germain was frozen to the ground just outside his front door Saturday evening.

He had been missing for about 17 hours when his body was discovered.

Officials said Willey apparently succumbed to the extremely cold temperatures.
