POWELL, Wyo. (AP) - The Park County coroner’s office says a woman whose body was found near an irrigation canal just west of Powell fell about 15 to 20 feet to her death.

A Park County search and rescue team found 59-year-old Janet Poulsen about a mile from her home early Wednesday. Her father reported her missing Tuesday evening after she was not seen or heard from in a couple of days.

Coroner Tim Power tells The Powell Tribune (https://bit.ly/1yOWmNK ) it’s unclear why she fell, but the embankment was slick with frost and ice. Poulsen is believed to have been walking her dog at the time.

Investigators do not suspect foul play.
