Unless the person in question in famous, or the circumstances surrounding the actual death are out of the ordinary, I don’t think it’s considered news-worthy.
Would it just be called death from exposure?

I would conjecture, because it happens with such high frequency.

It's also somewhat horrifying, particularly if there is an economic inequity aspect to it, ie: person ran out of food, electricity turned off, water supply disconnected because they cannot afford to pay for those things (this happens in the US).

Although I imagine maybe you are referring to random events that take a person by surprise? Like, perhaps in the aftermath of a natural disaster and a person is trapped. That, too, is quite horrifying.

I meant all of those kinds of things really, I'm just surprised there aren't more people keeling over from exhaustion etc all the time.

This is what’s going on with me. I’m feeling forced to suicide for circumstantial reasons. It probably happens a lot. Especially now that they ruined the economy. Yea we will be starving to death or suiciding.
