An arctic cold front that descended upon eastern Nebraska and most of Iowa may have claimed an elderly victim. Omaha police said in a news release that officers found the body of an 80-year-old man a little before 5:40 a.m. Thursday in a street not far from an assisted living center where he lived. He was not dressed appropriately for the cold, police said. The wind chill had dropped to minus 26 degrees (minus 32 Celsius) at that time, the National Weather Service said.

He’s been identified as Robert Freymuller. The investigation into his death has been turned over to the Douglas County coroner, police said.
