A medical examiner has determined a man found dead in McLeod County after walking away from his disabled car died of exposure.
    
Fifty-five-year-old Garry Kontz, of Stewart, got stuck in the snow Sunday night during blizzard-like conditions. Sheriff's deputies and firefighters found his body on Monday about two miles from his vehicle along a rural road south of Stewart.
    
The Star Tribune reports the McLeod County Sheriff's Department has been notified that a medical examiner determined Kontz was a victim of hypothermia.
