A man found dead in a vacant building on the Far South Side early Saturday is at least the 12th cold-related fatality in Cook County this season.

Ronald Turner, 62, was found dead inside the building about midnight in the 0-100 block of 110th Place, according to police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Turner, thought to be homeless, was pronounced dead at the scene, authorities said.

An autopsy on Saturday found he died of heart disease, with cold exposure listed as a secondary cause.

At least 11 other people have died of cold-related causes in Cook County since early October, officials said.
