Jan 31, 2014 - From staff reports

Toxicology results show Dana Eagle, 36, of Riverton, was intoxicated at the time of his December death in Riverton City Park.

The incident was ruled an accident resulting from hypothermia. Eagle's blood-alcohol content was .27.

His frozen body was found at about 9 a.m. Dec. 22, after someone called police to report an intoxicated subject at the park.

"When the officer arrived, he found the man was not alive," Riverton Police Department chief Mike Broadhead said.

Eagle is described as 5 feet, 8 inches tall weighing 150 pounds with black hair and brown eyes. He did not have any money on him when he died, and all of his other property was returned to his next of kin.
