Possible cold weather death investigated


MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The Milwaukee County Medical Examiner's Office is investigating a possible cold weather death.

Authorities say an autopsy will be done Thursday on the body of a 40-year-old woman found on a sidewalk on Milwaukee's north side. The medical examiner says the woman had a core body temperature of 80 degrees.

Dangerously cold weather has settled into Wisconsin where frostbite is a possibility in a matter of minutes.

Steady wind Thursday pushed wind chill readings to 35 below. Some school districts canceled classes and others delayed the start of school by a couple hours.

The National Weather Service issued a wind chill advisory for most of the state.
