(Stillwater, MN) — The medical examiner has confirmed that the body found in Baytown Township on Christmas Day is that of George Musser, the 20-year-old Stillwater man last seen alive leaving a downtown Stillwater bar early the morning before. Officials say preliminary evidence indicates Musser died from cold weather exposure, but “official cause and manner of death remains pending toxicology results.” Investigators say video from traffic and surveillance cameras tracked a person matching Musser’s description as he traveled “alone and on foot, leading from downtown Stillwater towards the area where his body was ultimately located.” Musser’s godmother told the Star Tribune that he appeared disoriented and lost.
