AURORA, Colo. (AP) -- Coroner's officials say the death of a man whose body was found near a trash bin near an Aurora business was likely related to exposure to the cold.

The Arapahoe County coroner's office identified the man Thursday as 22-year-old Marcellus Xavier Scott. His body was found around 9 a.m. Wednesday.

The Denver Post reports Scott wasn't homeless, and there were no obvious signs of physical injury. Results of toxicology tests are pending.
