Hunters find frozen body in snow near Jackson

A frozen body found near Jackson is believed to be that of a 59-year-old man from Dallas.

Hunters found the body partially buried in snow on Saturday morning above Cache Creek.

Teton County sheriff's deputies won't release the man's name until his identity is verified.

Sgt. Todd Stanyon said he suspects the man died of either natural causes or an accident. The man looked to be prepared for a day-hike but it's not known what he was doing in the area. The spot where he was found is about
1,300 feet above the Cache Creek parking area but it's not near any established trail.
