CEDAR CITY -- An autopsy has determined the identity and the cause of death of a man found dead inside a freezer.

The man was 65-year-old Gerald Wood, who lived in the home. Family members cleaning the home found the body last Tuesday.

Police say it appears Wood died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.

Wood was known to disappear for months at time, though relatives had reported him missing in May.
