Quebec City police believe a man found dead on Christmas Day may have frozen to death.
Réal Charron's body was found early Monday morning outside a building on des Capucins Boulevard in the city's Limoilou neighbourhood.
Const. Cyndi Paré said the 57-year-old is believed to have died of hypothermia, but it is unclear whether there is a criminal element to the case.
The temperature reached a low of –20.6 C Sunday evening before going up to around –10 C overnight.
Police are investigating the discovery as a suspicious death and are waiting for the results of an autopsy.
Paré said it is not known whether the man was homeless.
