Police are investigating the discovery of a body in the town of Mexico.

WABI-TV reports the man's body was found at around 3:30 Tuesday afternoon behind a building off Route 120. Police say the man was last seen Monday night heading out of a house while wearing light clothing.

An autopsy is scheduled with the State Medical Examiner to positively identify the body and determine cause of death. But, police say, it's likely that the man died of exposure due to the extreme cold. So far, the man's name has not been released.

We'll update this story as more details become available.
