Police say they aren’t sure if the man was homeless, despite where his body was found. Family members told investigators the man has a history of illness that might have played a part in his death.

This is the second body found in Lexington on Friday. A homeless man was found dead under the I-75 overpass on Winchester Road after he was spotted sleeping there.  The coroner’s report says the man froze to death in single-digit wind chills.
