Flagstaff Police: Two Recent Deaths Likely Weather-Related
Flagstaff Police say a pair of unrelated deaths appear to have been caused by exposure to the cold.
Police responded to two calls last week of unresponsive individuals.
A department release identifies the deceased as 49-year-old George Toldeo and 68-year-old Paul Zilth Jr.
Police say both deaths are under investigation, though neither instance appears suspicious.
Extreme weather and severe cold are believed to be constributing factors, and a department release says both individuals were found partially covered in snow.
The department asks the public to call its non-emergency phone number or area service providers such as Flagstaff Shelter Services, Catholic Social Services or Sunshine Rescue Mission if they see someone who may be in need of assistance.
