TOWN OF HAMMOND, Wis. (AP) – A medical examiner has determined the cause of death for a woman whose body was found in a western Wisconsin lake.

The Ramsey County Medical Examiner’s Office in Minnesota says 38-year-old Kristelle Wolle, of Baldwin, drowned in Pine Lake last weekend.

St. Croix (kroy) County sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to a car crash about 5 a.m. Sunday in the Town of Hammond. Deputies found no one in the car.

Emergency responders searched the area and found Wolle’s body in the lake. Authorities say Wolle’s blood alcohol content was .21, more than twice the legal limit to drive.
