County officials have determined an assisted living facility resident, whose body was found outside the facility last week, died of hypothermia. The 93-year-old female resident was found in the morning near a sidewalk outside of the facility where she lived.

According to police, the resident was last seen inside the facility sometime Thursday. Her death was reported to police around 8:10 a.m. Friday. It is believed that the woman left the facility on her own. The resident lived in an assisted living facility that was connected to a nursing home. However, officials say the facility does offer dementia and Alzheimer's care. For more, read the story.
