Shoshone Man Died From Alcohol, Hypothermia

(AP) Authorities say a 25-year-old southern Idaho man found dead along a road near Gooding  succumbed to a lethal mix of alcohol and hypothermia. The Gooding County Sheriff’s Office on Monday released the results of a toxicology report in the death of Juan Carlos Perez-Garcia. Sheriff Shaun  Gough says the Shoshone man and his friends had been drinking heavily the night of Oct. 20 and went to sleep in a van. Gough says the friends awoke to find Perez-Garcia wasn’t breathing and panicked, leaving the body along a roadside in the frigid cold. Police say Perez-Garcia had a blood-alcohol level of .32, or about four times the legal limit. Prosecutors are expected to review the case to determine if charges will be filed in connection to the death.
