why the body is cool after death?

During life, body temperature is maintained by the body's metabolism. At death, metabolism ceases, and body temperature begins to approach the ambient (environmental) temperature which is almost always lower than body temperature. After death body cools by radiation, conduction and convection. Body warmth is lost from the surface to the surroundings.
