GRAYSON COUNTY, TX -- We've learned a senior citizen who disappeared at Lake Texoma in February apparently froze to death.

A toxicology report from the medical examiner's office in Dallas showed Enoch "Dickie" Dixon, 83, died of environmental hypothermia, Sgt. David Russell of the Sheriff's Office said.

According to Russell, Dixon's dementia was also a factor because he couldn't take care of himself. A volunteer on a 4-wheeler found Dixon's body in a wheat field a couple miles south of his house on Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge property.

The discovery came 13 days after he was last seen. According to Dallas temperature records, there were chilly temperatures in the evenings in the 40s around that time. Russell says the case isn't closed but there's no reason to believe Dixon's death was criminal in nature.
