26-year-old homeless man with history of substance abuse is found unresponsive on the street following a blizzard. He is in a partial state of undress with shirt removed and pants partially pulled down. Autopsy was notable for the presence of multiple superficial punctate gastric erosions (photo 1) and a pancreatic abnormality (photos 2 and 3). Toxicology was positive for methamphetamine in the blood.
