March 6, 2019

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Authorities say a woman found lying in a snowbank south of Omaha has died.

The Sarpy County Sheriff’s Office says deputies and medics were dispatched around 8:40 Tuesday morning after someone reported seeing the woman near a car dealership. The office says 53-year-old Christine Koory was taken in critical condition to Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha, where she died. The office says she lived at the Walnut Creek Apartments, less than a half-mile (less than 1 kilometer) from where she was found west of U.S. Highway 75.

The temperature when she was found was around 13 degrees (minus 10.6 Celsius) with a wind chill of 4 below zero (minus 20 Celsius)

Authorities don’t suspect a crime was involved in Koory’s death. An autopsy was ordered.
