A 70-year-old man found frozen in his home in suburban Chicago became the eighth victim of the cold this winter, and the first death tied to the current cold snap. The Cook County Medical Examiner's Office says the man was found in an unheated home in a Des Plaines trailer park on Sunday. An office official says the cold weather also caused the death of a 71-year-old man who was found dead in his car in Glenview last Thursday. Meanwhile, officials in Chicago have opened a number of warming centers and say there are more than 3,700 beds available for people who need shelter overnight.
