Elderly woman found dead outside neighbor's home
(THE MED CITY BEAT) - A 91-year-old woman was found dead behind a home in southeast Rochester Wednesday morning.
Foul play is not suspected in Marie Schinke's death. Police tell KAAL-TV they believe she died from either a medical emergency or the cold weather.
Family members discovered Schinke was missing Wednesday morning when they went to check on her. She had last been seen Tuesday around 5:30 p.m.
KTTC-TV reports Schinke had a history of wandering away from home, but this was the first time she left without her coat and purse.
Investigators are still determining an official cause of the death.
