Police: Naked Man In Guitar Case Was Trying To Warm Up

MUSKOGEE, Okla. (UPI) — Authorities in Oklahoma said a man found naked in a guitar case was trying to keep warm after falling through ice.

Muskogee County Sheriff Charles Pearson said Zackery Aders, 31, of Checotah, was found wet and naked in a guitar case Tuesday south of Muskogee, the Muskogee Phoenix reported Thursday.

“He was walking out on the icy pond, and it caved it on him,” Pearson said. “He took all his clothes off and got in a guitar case. He was in the guitar case trying to keep warm after he fell in the pond.”

Aders was found around 3 p.m. Tuesday by some people checking on their cattle. The people called 911, and police responded with sheriff’s deputies and Emergency Medical Services workers.

“They had to walk back in there to find him,” he said. “He was so cold he couldn’t even talk.”

A spokeswoman for EASTAR Health System hospital in Muskogee said Aders was treated for non-life-threatening injuries and released.

The National Weather Service said the temperature in the area where Aders was found around 3 p.m. Tuesday was 35 degrees, with the wind chill taking it down to 21 degrees.
