Man's body found near tavern in frigid Jefferson County

Authorities say they don't suspect foul play in the death of a man whose body was found outside a northern New York bar.

The Jefferson County Sheriff's Department tells local media outlets that 27-year-old Keith Doxtater of Evans Mills was found Wednesday morning on a slope behind the Last Call Bar and Grill in his hometown, near Fort Drum 75 miles north of Syracuse.

Police haven't said how Doxtater died, whether he may have fallen or how long his body was outside the bar. Authorities say their investigation is continuing and they're awaiting autopsy results.

Temperatures in northern New York dipped below zero early Wednesday morning.
