LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – There’s an investigation after a homeless man was found dead on Wednesday morning.
The man was found in Hamburg off of Grey Lag Way near Walmart.
According to the coroner, a maintenance worker found the body of the 64 year old man in the wooded area in front the Murphy’s USA gas station.
The coroner says the man was possibly intoxicated and died of exposure from being outside.
“You know he’s got some age on him but not old or elderly by all appearances, you know so my heart goes out to his family,” said Gary Ginn, Fayette County Coroner.
The coroner says there will be an autopsy at the state medical examiners office to confirm exactly how the man died.
