Jumping to conclusions with no information.
So this story was posted Jan 4, 2014:
Multiple law enforcement agencies are investigating the death of a woman who was found unclothed and outside in the town of Presque Isle, but Vilas County Sheriff Joe Fath said he does not believe the public is in danger.
In a press release issued Saturday, Fath identified the deceased as Corrine Gerster, 61, of Oshkosh.
According to Fath, the sheriff’s office received a 9-1-1 call at 8:45 a.m. on Friday, Jan. 2, reporting that a naked female body had been discovered outside The Towne House antique store, 8243 Main St., in downtown Presque Isle, a small community in northern Vilas County near the Upper Michigan border.
A local emergency medical crew arrived first on the scene and determined the body exhibited no signs of life, Fath said. Numerous law enforcement officers later responded, and for much of Friday, a line of police vehicles cordoned off the front of the store’s property.
The body was not moved until a field response unit from the Wisconsin Department of Justice Division of Criminal Investigation could process the scene. That unit arrived around 2 p.m. Friday.
A forensic autopsy will be conducted Monday or Tuesday, according to Fath.
Speculation has swirled in Presque Isle and on social media about the cause of the death. In the press release, Fath addressed a rumor that wolves were somehow involved.
“There have been no signs of wolf activity in the area of this investigation,” Fath said.
He declined comment about other rumors.
On January 5th this update was posted:
Animal tracks were discovered near the body, The Lakeland Times has learned.
The state Department of Natural Resources determined the tracks belonged to domestic canines and led to two different homes, according to Bill Cosh, a spokesperson with the state Department of Natural Resources.
It is unclear what role, if any, the dogs played in the death. Cosh declined to comment further about the dogs on Monday, citing a pending investigation. He said the sheriff’s office asked the DNR to help in the investigation.
Vilas County Sheriff Joe Fath did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
On the same day, Mary Belafonte, one of the usual foamers, popped in with her .02
As per usual, it immediately has to be about pit bulls. and now suddenly there are groups of feral pit bulls running amok all over the country killing people and stripping them of their clothes.
It should also be noted that the dogs in the case she mentioned from Ohio, weren’t pit bulls. The were mastiff mixes. And as we’ve stated ad nauseum, mastiffs are NOT pit bulls. (It was Klonda Richey if you are unaware of the case, you can google it).
Anyway, today this was released.
Autopsy update – Tuesday, Jan. 6
The cause of death in this investigation has been ruled natural causes pending lab and toxicology results. The marks and injuries observed were post mortem. No foul play is suspected.
It is believed that a dog that the victim was escorting home may have attempted to move, drag or wake the victim and in doing so tugged at clothing causing them to tear or rip away.
Mary Belafonte, like so many of the foamers, is an idiot.
