An autopsy says a man was extremely intoxicated and died of hypothermia back in January behind a barbeque restaurant.
Williamston police say workers at Shaw's Barbeque discovered the body of Jackie Blount on the morning on January 8th.
An autopsy, which was released today, says the man's blood alcohol content was .21, or more than twice the legal limit for driving a vehicle.
The autopsy says the 55-year-old man and another person went to the restaurant to pick up food. The driver left Blount alone in the car, and when he returned with the food the man was gone.
Security footage showed the man stumbling around for some three hours before disappearing from view. The temperature at the time was well below freezing.
The autopsy says the man had fall-related abrasions and contusions and that acute intoxication was a contributing factor in his death.
