90-year-old woman found dead in snow in NW Ohio

WAUSEON, Ohio (AP) — Police in northwestern Ohio say a 90-year-old woman was found dead in the snow near her stranded car.

The woman's body was found Monday morning in drifting snow in the city of Wauseon (wah-SEE'-ahn), roughly 35 miles west of Toledo. Police say it appears that the woman's car had gotten stuck in the snow and she was trying to get back home.

Wauseon assistant police chief Bill McConnell says authorities don't know how long the woman had been outside or what led to her death.
