Police have identified the man found dead behind the Pepsi Cola plant on Gallup Christmas eve as Richard Pete, 49, of Bread Springs.

Pete’s body was sent to the Office of the Medical Examiner in Albuquerque for toxicology testing and for an autopsy to determine his cause of death.

Investigators did not discover any signs of foul play at the scene, and if it’s exposure related, Gallup Police Department Capt. Rick White said this will mark the fifth death this year tied to frigid temperatures.
