SPRINGFIELD, Mo — Toxicology results show a Springfield woman found outside an Ozarks storage unit company died of ethanol intoxication and hypothermia. Someone found the body of 51 year old Yvonne Lowers near Go Mini's on South Scenic Avenue on January 10th, 2011.
Earlier that week, Lowers was reported missing by her boss when she failed to show up for a scheduled shift. By all accounts, Lowers was a model citizen. Friends and family say the grandmother donated her time to March of Dimes, Convoy of Hope, and other non-profit organizations because she knew it was helping people who were less fortunate than her.
The Springfield Police Department has not closed its investigation. Corporal Matt Brown says the department is still waiting a couple more pieces of information but did not get into any specifics.
