Harford woman found in field died of hypothermia


The state medical examiner ruled yesterday that a Harford woman who was found Sunday in a field off Hall Street in Edgewood died of hypothermia, a Harford sheriff's spokeswoman said.

Residents found the woman, 66, in the 1200 block of Hall St. about 7 p.m., said spokeswoman Ginger Rigney, who declined to release the victim's name.

Investigators initially suspected foul play because she was found naked in the field, Rigney said. But, after talking with family members, deputies ruled out suspicious circumstances because of the woman's psychiatric history, Rigney said.

The woman was last seen Friday and had wandered away from home before, Rigney said.
