ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Cold temperatures helped contribute to the death of a homeless man in Albany.  

Firefighters and Emergency medical Services responded to 1418 Palmyra Road a little before 3:00PM Monday.  

Inside the abandoned MBM Optics building, someone discovered the body of a homeless Mitchell County man.

Dougherty County Coroner Emma Quimbley says sleeping on the cold concrete combined with other medical problems are what most likely caused the natural death.

Now she's working on contacting the man's family.
