RICHMOND, Mich. (AP) - Police say a body found on a sidewalk outside a Macomb County pharmacy has been identified as a 22-year-old Columbus Township woman.

Richmond Police Chief David Teske tells The Macomb Daily of Mount Clemens that Samantha Ward was out Friday night with friends at a tavern and “took a different path” as the group started to walk to their homes.

Her body was found about 9 a.m. Saturday in Richmond, about 34 miles northeast of Detroit. She was found without a hat, jacket or gloves. Temperatures early Saturday morning were near or below zero.

An autopsy was expected as early as Sunday.

Police are reviewing surveillance video from shops in the area.

Columbus Township is northeast of Richmond in St. Clair County.
