Woman found dead after fall

ATHENS – A woman who apparently fell was found dead in the snow Monday morning at the Knollwood Trailer Park off U.S. 50, the Athens County sheriff said.

Teresa Goode, 45, Knollwood Court, was pronounced dead at the scene by the county coroner, Sheriff Pat Kelly said. The body was discovered around 9 a.m. Monday by a passerby who thought the woman was beaten, Kelly said.

Foul play is not suspected, based on information from the scene, the residence and the position of the body, he said. Scrapes on the body were consistent with a fall, Kelly said.

An autopsy and toxicology tests have been ordered by the coroner and until results are available from the lab, a final disposition has not been made on the case, Kelly said.

A daughter, mother and sister living in Columbus have been notified, he said.
