NJ Woman Found Dead Underneath Snow

A New Jersey woman was found dead in her yard on Monday, after a group of teenagers reported to police that they had discovered a body. 64-year old Mary Wall of Mahwah was found completely covered by snow in her driveway around 3:30 PM when several kids were walking home from the school bus, whose parents reported to officials they believed they had found a jacket, before realizing it was in fact a body. Mahwah Police stated that the woman apparently suffered a medical condition that became an emergency while she was outside and she was found, “holding a shovel and dressed for the elements.” The Bergen County Medical Examiner’s Office and police are continuing to investigate, but do not believe that foul play was involved.
