Man dies from heat exposure

(Autopsy results are in)…The Autopsy was performed this week.

84-Year-old Guadalupe Leon was found dead Tuesday morning. His body was in a canal Northwest of Calipatria, in front of a geothermal plant. The El Centro man had survived a vehicle collision, in which his vehicle crashed into a canal Sunday. The crash occurred in a canal separate to where the body was found. The County Coroners office says the autopsy determined that Leon died as a result of heat exposure and heart disease. The investigation is continuing to determine how the man got from one canal to another, how he got in the canal where the body was found, and how long the 84 year old had been dead before the body was found.
