ATHENS, Ohio (AP) -- A sheriff says a woman's body was found frozen in the snow at a southeast Ohio trailer park, and evidence at the scene indicated she fell.

A statement from Athens County Sheriff Pat Kelly says a passing driver spotted the body Monday in a yard at a trailer park near Athens, as below-zero wind chills were reported in the area.

The sheriff says scrapes on the body and its position indicated a fall, and foul play is not suspected. Authorities say an autopsy and toxicology tests may provide more information about how she died.

The sheriff's office identified the woman as 45-year-old Teresa Goode, a resident of the neighborhood.
