MAXWELL, Neb. (AP) — A Nebraska man was found dead in his home Monday night when the temperature inside the home was 14 below zero.
The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office said Wednesday it’s not clear exactly when 65-year-old Danny Effenbeck of Maxwell died. He was last seen Feb. 9 when his brother took him grocery shopping.
Test results that will determine how Effenbeck died are pending. Members of Maxwell’s Volunteer Fire Department found Effenbeck’s body when they went to check on him.
Lincoln County Sheriff Jerome Kramer said Effenbeck had a history of not having utilities at his home and he relied on a propane heater for warmth.
