BOISE -- The Ada County coroner has identified a 62-year-old man found dead at a Boise trailer park Tuesday morning.

Coroner Erwin Sonnenberg completed an autopsy on Frederick Myrl Rains today, but did not list a cause of death. Rains has no fixed address but is known in the Boise.

The autopsy did not reveal any signs of foul play or trauma. Sonnenberg says hypothermia is being considered. It will likely take several weeks to get back toxicology results.

Rains' body was found around 8:30 a.m. Tuesday outside a fifth-wheeler at Riley's Trailer Park in northwest Boise.

The man who owns the trailer told KTVB he had been drinking with Rains on New Year's Eve, but told him to leave after getting into an argument. Neighbors believe that Rains froze to death in the extreme cold temperatures, which were the lowest in the area in several years.
