The Harrison County Sheriff's Department is investigating after a man was found unresponsive Saturday morning outside of a home in Stonewood, as temperatures dropped well below freezing.

Deputies said the 55-year-old man from Nutter Fort was found in the backyard of a residence and was taken to the hospital.  Deputies said Monday that the man died.  Hypothermia is likely a factor in his death.  His identity has not been released.
