    Reptiles respond to extreme changes in hot and cold temperatures. If cold water or hot water doesn't make it move, then I'm afraid that the turtle may have passed away. Also, if you can use a stethoscope or press your ear to the shell and try to make out a heart beating or the sound of breathing.

    Judging from what you typed, I'd say the outlook is grim.

    It sounds dead, maybe you should take it to a vet just to check. Wait, do turtles hibernate or is that just tortoises?

    you should touch it with a stick to poke him if he don't move he is dead but sometimes they hibernate for some time so he might be alive still.
