Man found dead in Miner County field died of hypothermia

FEDORA, S.D. (AP) - An autopsy has concluded that a Rapid City man found dead in a Miner County field over the weekend died from the cold.

The Daily Republic reports an autopsy concluded that 30-year-old Dirk Boardman died of hypothermia. Toxicology tests are pending.

The Miner County Sheriff's Office does not suspect any foul play.

Authorities say Boardman was staying with a friend at a farm near Fedora and left for a walk Friday morning. He was found dead about a mile away Saturday afternoon.
