An electric space heater in the room where his body was found Dec. 31 was unplugged. "I can't understand why a person of his means would choose to live like that," he said. Heer, who died of hypothermia, was found fully clothed in a bed in Lt. TedZets. "I can tell you it was so cold in that house I couldn't stand it," said Washington County Coroner Farrell Jackson. "I went in with just my suitcoat on and I had to come back out and get my topcoat." There was only one electric light bulb in the house and no amenities, such as a television set or radio, he said. Heer lived alone and his only relatives are nieces and nephews, the sitting room of his home, Jackson said. Jackson and police found money stashed in an unlocked safe, a steel box under the bed and a steel box bolted to a table in the sitting room.; "It was" in bags and envelopes. Some of the bills were very old and some were brand new. There was $1,000 in 50s in an envelope, $1,000 of 20s in another, other envelopes with $1,000 in each," the coroner said.
