Cold weather is thought to have played a role in the deaths of 61-year-old Timothy Begay, and 39-year-old Ferric C. Poleahla, two men believed to be homeless, who were both found dead in Flagstaff yesterday.
NAZ Today's Nicholas Bratcher has the details on the circumstances surrounding their deaths, as well as the actions taken by homeless shelters, and why those who are homeless are often reluctant to seek shelter.
Sgt. Charles Hernandez talks about the current medical investigation, while Jonathan Joseph of Sunrise Rescue Mission and Ross Altenbaugh of Flagstaff Shelter Services discuss the work they are doing to provide shelter.
