ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Fairbanks police say a 74-year-old man who recently moved to Alaska from New Jersey was found dead on the outdoor steps of a church.

Police say the death of Gregory Klemm was likely the result of exposure to the cold and does not appear to be suspicious.

Police spokeswoman Yumi McCulloch says Klemm’s body was found outside St. Matthews Church Wednesday morning. The National Weather Service says the overnight low in Fairbanks was 22 degrees.

Police say Klemm travelled to Alaska in recent months. His New Jersey hometown was not disclosed.
