After a music teacher from Queens died from hypothermia on a Catskills hiking trip last weekend, neighbors and colleagues reported the man hadn’t been acting like himself over the past few months. The teacher went missing after a hike in early May and was discovered semiconscious and hypothermic by police eight days later. Authorities say the death doesn’t appear suspicious.
