At 1:00 a.m., a homicide detective found the reading of a corpse's body temperature to be 88 degrees Fahrenheit. One hour later, the body temperature is 83 degrees Fahrenheit. If the body has been in a 74 degree Fahrenheit room since its death, what is the time of death assuming the body was at 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit at its death?
