NILES, Ill. (AP) -- The body of a woman has been found by a man shoveling snow along a suburban Chicago street.
The body of 55-year-old Elizabeth Lutz was found buried under snow covering a Niles parkway late Monday.
Police say the woman was found face down in the parkway. An officer called to the scene administered CPR, but failed to get a response from the woman.
Police say the woman was taken to Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge, where she was pronounced dead.
Authorities say there were no visible signs of injury on the body. They added the woman was properly dressed for weather conditions.
The Cook County medical examiner’s office reports a Tuesday autopsy was inconclusive, pending the results of additional tests.
