CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

A homeless man was found dead Tuesday morning at a bus stop in downtown Cincinnati's Government Square.

Maslow's Army, a local group that aims to help those battling addiction, alcoholism, and mental illness, was told the man froze to death, according to a representative from the group.  Maslow's Army was told the man was Ken Martin, a person that has received assistance from the group in the past.

"I guess he thought under that light at the bus stop that he would at least block the wind -- but you know, he succumbed to his death and it's just unacceptable," said Sam Landis, a co-founder of Maslow's Army. "I wonder how many people passed him. I wonder if anybody stopped to say, 'Hey, are you OK man?'"

Officers were called to the bus stop the morning after Christmas to find an unresponsive man.

The Coroner's Office says there was a Ken Martin on the coroner's report, and an autopsy is being done to learn his cause of death.

Sam and Susan Landis, who co-founded Maslow's Army, said they grew close to Ken Martin in the past few months. They said their hearts sank when the learned of his death.

Maslow's Army said they are working on opening a daytime shelter.

The Homeless Coalition says affordable housing and livable wages are the long-term solutions to fight homelessness.

"Unfortunately, there can never be enough shelters," said Mona Jenkins, director of development and operations for the Homeless Coalition. "And they're at their maximum capacity."
