LAKEVILLE — The Hennepin County medical examiner’s office says a Lakeville woman found dead outside her home during last week’s frigid weather died of hypothermia.

The medical examiner on Wednesday listed 32-year-old Andrea Marker’s cause of death as hypothermia complicated by acute alcohol intoxication.

Authorities say family members found Marker on Jan. 7. Police say there was evidence of hypothermia before she died.
