This man literally starved to death. We’re assuming he was homeless.
In humans, prolonged starvation can cause permanent organ damage and eventually, death. The term inanition refers to the symptoms and effects of starvation.
Among the over 150,000 death records made public by the county medical examiner since the 1990s, about ten mention inanition as a cause of death.
