A preliminary autopsy shows a missing Stephens City woman found dead in her yard probably was NOT attacked.
Frederick County Sheriff's Department Major Robert Eckman says preliminary autopsy results indicate NO foul play in the death of 76-year-old Dorothy Nesselrodt.
Nesselrodt had been missing for a week before a neighbor noticed her body under about a foot of snow Sunday morning. She was found in her nightgown and Eckman says it's possible she became confused and went to sleep in the snow.
