(Reuters) – A New Jersey woman was found frozen to death in the snow near her home on Sunday morning, authorities said.
Olivia Benito, 66, had stopped by a neighbor’s house for drinks after they left a benefit event at an Elks Club in Lakewood, New Jersey, Al Della Fave, spokesman for the Ocean County prosecutor’s office, said in a news release.
The neighbor told police that Benito had some alcoholic beverages during the course of the evening, Della Fave said. She left the neighbor’s townhouse at about midnight to walk to her home two doors away, he said.
The neighbor said she discovered Benito face down in snow when she went out to clear her car of snow at about 7 a.m. on Sunday, Della Fave said. She was pronounced dead at the scene by ambulance personnel, he said.
Police found no outward signs of trauma or foul play but the death remains under investigation, Della Fave said.
The temperature at 7 a.m. on Sunday in the Lakewood area was 10 degrees, according to the National Weather Service.

George Conway lists all of Trump’s most hilarious geographic blunders after the president whines about being mocked
President Donald Trump's circle is up in arms over a late-night CNN segment on Monday in which analysts joked that Trump — and his fanbase — are probably not smart enough to locate Ukraine on a map.
But on Tuesday, conservative lawyer and Trump critic George Conway pointed out that the president has indeed never shown any aptitude for geography — and listed off some of his most well-known and mocked blunders:
A thread for those who think @realDonaldTrump could find Ukraine on a marked map:
Trump’s lawyers push back as Bolton’s explosive new allegations rattle Senate Republicans
Donald Trump's lawyers, eager to attain his swift acquittal, pushed back forcefully Monday against explosive new allegations from former national security advisor John Bolton, insisting the US president's dealings regarding Ukraine were not impeachable.
The defense also injected Joe Biden and his family directly into the argument for why the president should not be ousted.
At only the third impeachment trial in US history, they stressed that Trump's requests to Ukraine to investigate his potential Democratic White House challenger were motivated by concerns about corruption.
Republicans faced fresh pressure to subpoena Bolton as a firsthand witness at Trump's Senate impeachment trial following new revelations, which could amount to damning evidence about the president's actions.
‘The president’s lying — that should matter!’ CNN’s Berman unloads on GOP for blowing off Bolton revelations
CNN's John Berman on Tuesday expressed frustration at the idea that Republican senators could still vote to acquit President Donald Trump even after leaked excerpts of former national security adviser John Bolton's book further implicated the president.
During a panel discussion about Bolton's book, which reportedly alleges that Trump directly linked releasing military aid to Ukraine with investigations into former Vice President Joe Biden, New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman warned that the book may not be the big game changer that many have been hoping to see.
"I'm somewhat more skeptical that this is going to necessarily lead to witnesses," she said. "It might. I just think that we really don't know, and I think the desire for Republicans to have this wrapped up fairly quickly remains strong."
