RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - Law enforcement authorities have identified the elderly woman whose body was found in a freezer in western South Dakota and say she may have died of natural causes.

The Pennington County Sheriff’s Office on Monday identified the woman as Adele Zebrowski, who is believed to be from Fayetteville, Arkansas.

Zebrowski’s body was found Thursday in a freezer at a Rapid City home. Deputies discovered it while responding to a call about a possible missing person case related to an ongoing fraud investigation.

The sheriff’s office says preliminary autopsy results indicate Zebrowski died of natural causes. A final cause of death will be determined after toxicology and other tests are completed.

Authorities say they believe Zebrowski lived in Arkansas with her son Stewart Zebrosky. He moved to Rapid City in 2013 and has since died.
