Cuming County Attorney Daniel Bracht says an autopsy shows Donna Baumert died of hypothermia, not her crash injuries.
The body of the 56-year-old woman was found March 5 near her car about a mile south of Beemer. Authorities say it appeared her car ran through a dead end and went about a half-mile through a field before coming to rest in a creek bed.
The accident appeared to have occurred about two weeks before the wreckage and Baumert’s body were found. She lived in West Point.
