UPS Driver Discovers Frozen Dead Man Outside His Home

A UPS employee discovered the frozen dead body of an 80-year-old man in front of his house.

The employee called Lenawee County Sheriff’s Office dispatchers at about 6:15 p.m. on Wednesday to report a person in the roadway outside his residence in the 400 block of Knapp Road in Cambridge Township. Emergency personnel were dispatched, according to Michigan State Police Detective Sgt. Larry Rothman.

When state police troopers arrived at the scene, they found Richard Theodore Kokochak lying in a curved driveway close to his car.

Rothman said that Kokochak’s body was frozen, which suggests that he had been there for at least a couple of days.

Kokochak’s body was between his car and the house. It was not visible from the road.

Kokochak lived in the house with his partner, who was in the hospital at the time.

The state police crime lab came to the scene to investigate whether there was any foul play. At this time they believe the death was either the result of an accident or a health problem.

The death remains under investigation pending an autopsy report by the Lenawee County Medical Examiner’s Office.

“At this point, there’s no concern for any public safety issues or anything like that,” Rothman said.

Troopers were assisted at the scene by Cambridge Township police, Jackson Community Ambulance, and the Cambridge Township Fire Department.

      This plandemic is a scare & fear ruse. Corona, Covid 19 is a flu bug but was turned into a control virus in order to subdue everyone. Let not your hearts be troubled, enjoy life and to hell with this communist agenda
