CALGARY- Police say they believe a man found dead at a southwest homeless camp may have died of exposure to the cold.

The body was recovered from a tent near the Shaganappi Point Golf Course on Saturday morning.

Police say they were called to the scene by someone who knew the man.

The man is believed to be in his fifties.

Police say an investigator with the medical examiner’s office believes the man had already been dead for at least two days and that the death is not suspicious.
