Woman Found Dead in Columbia County Home With No Heat or Water
CATAWISSA — According to the Columbia County Coroner, a 74-year-old woman was found dead in her home that had no operating heat or running water.
Judy Maurer died sometime last week as a result of heart failure due to hypothermia said the coroner.
Maurer was found by police after they were called for a welfare check by a mailman who noticed her mail was piling up.
Officials say the oil tanks were full but there was no indication Maurer had been running the heating system in the home.
