Police remarked that there were no visible signs of violence or trauma yet his partially clothed body remained suspicious with the clothes found beside him. In the final stages of hypothermia however, individuals can sometimes tear off their clothing. At the time of his discovery, the White Plains area temperature was at minus 1 degree. The School’s principal, Sister Theresa Lee alerted parents with an email detailing that the body found by a maintenance worker, was not in sight from the children’s classrooms. As a reminder, warming centers are open throughout Rockland county with some staying open as late as 10:00pm. In these winter conditions, hypothermia can set in quickly with symptoms ranging from shivering, dizziness, nausea, faster heart rate, and fatigue. For a complete list of warming centers and hours, visit rocklandgov.com.
