An autopsy performed Tuesday determined that hypothermia and coronary atherosclerosis caused the death of a 56-year-old man found unresponsive on a South Side street Monday, according to the Cook County medical examiner's office.
About 9:20 a.m. Monday in the Fernwood neighborhood, authorities found Riccardo White unconscious in the 10000 block of South Wentworth Avenue.
White, who lived in the 1000 block of West 105th Street, was taken to Roseland Community Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 10:03 a.m., according to the Cook County medical examiner's office.
Following an autopsy performed Tuesday, the medical examiner's office listed hypothermia following cold exposure as the primary cause of White's death. Coronary atherosclerosis was found to be a secondary cause.
White's death was ruled an accident.
