HYANNIS - The Barnstable County District Attorney's office has released the autopsy results for 80-year-old Robert Ouellette, the Cotuit man who went missing on December 30 and was found in Truro last Friday.  According to the autopsy results, Mr. Ouellette's death was a result of hypothermia and heart disease.

Mr. Ouellette went missing shortly after picking up his car from a Hyannis Mercury dealership on December 30th.  According to his wife, he suffered from memory lapses, confusion and was taking over twenty different prescriptions.
