Coroner Says Woman Died of Hypothermia No Homicide
Yakima Police say a 54-year-old woman, identified as Jodi Stiltner, found dead near Myron Lake on Monday died of hypothermia. Yakima County Coroner Jim Curtice ruled the death an accident as he awaits further answers from a toxicology report. He wants to know if she was drugs or had been drinking alcohol before she died.
Surveillance video of the shows Stiltner arrived in the area with a man who then pushed her out of his vehicle and left the area. Hours later she was found dead near the lake near 40th Avenue and Fruitvale.
Police have questioned the man she was with before her death but no arrest has been made.
