Sheriff Reminding People to Check on Those Living Alone this Winter
12/12/2019- It’s not officially Winter for more than a week yet, but recent cold temps have already proven deadly for some at-risk residents. Marinette County Sherriff Jerry Sauve reports his department and the medical examiner’s office have investigated multiple weather-related deaths this season. Sauve says some of the victims did not have power in their homes at the time, while others were outside and exposed to the elements when they died. He’s now urging residents to remember to check in on their loved ones or neighbors who may live alone this winter, especially during extended cold snaps or major snow events.
