Police in Flagstaff say they’re investigating two unrelated deaths that are believed to be tied to weather.
They say officers responded to a report of a man who wasn’t breathing about 11 a.m. Tuesday. Police and medical personnel determined he was dead. He’s been identified as 61-year-old Timothy Begay of Flagstaff. Flagstaff police then responded to a call of an unresponsive man in a Bushmaster Park bathroom. The man was pronounced dead at a hospital. Police say the man was identified as 39-year-old Ferris Poleahla of Flagstaff. Police say there doesn’t appear to be suspicious circumstances in either death and a recent snow storm and freezing temperatures could be factors.
