RENO, Nev. (AP) - An autopsy is planned on a homeless man found dead in a Reno park.

Authorities say a Reno police officer doing a routine check on homeless people found the man dead Wednesday morning at Whitaker Park just west of the University of Nevada, Reno and near Interstate 80.

Police Lt. William Rulla says it's not known whether they man died from the cold or something else.

Overnight temperatures in the Reno area have been in the single digits or colder for the past several days.
