The Durham man who washed ashore on OBX in November is suffering from hypothermia

DURHAM, NC (WNCN) — A Durham man whose body washed ashore on Outer Banks beaches in November had officially ruled his death as hypothermia and water immersion, an autopsy showed on Monday.

Gregory L. Miller, 65, washed up on the north end of Cape Lookout National Seashore on the morning of Nov. 8, according to a US Park Service winter announcement.

Park rangers and the Carteret County Sheriff’s Office said they opened an investigation into his death after Miller was washed ashore after disappearing from a group of cabins only accessible by boat: the Great Island Cabin Camp .

The autopsy revealed pulmonary edema, known as excess fluid in the lungs, and a lack of routine prescription medications that Miller was taking. It also identified edematous changes in the brain, or the abnormal swelling of fluid or organs.

These autopsy discoveries led to the conclusion that there was no third-party fault.

When Miller’s body was officially discovered, his cause of death was unknown.
