OZAUKEE COUNTY (WITI) — The Milwaukee County Medical Examiner’s Office conducted an autopsy on Mary Ann Schuerman on Wednesday, March 4th.

It appears that alcohol and extreme cold weather were contributing factors to Schuerman’s death. The Ozaukee County Sheriff’s Office investigation to this point has not uncovered any evidence of foul play. However, the investigation remains open pending toxicology results.

Schuerman, age 70, was found deceased in the family van by her husband in the Town of Grafton on Friday, February 27th. Officials say Schuerman and her husband had returned home Thursday evening from a night of celebrating her birthday.

    What happened here?? He left her passed out in the van in cold temperatures after she was all liquored up? If he was the driver he must have been pretty lit up to forget about his wife passed out in the van after he drove home. Does he recall driving over any pedestrians on the way home?? Where were they drinking and who was serving these two well beyond what they should have been served?? If you can’t recall that you have a passenger in your vehicle should you be behind the wheel driving???

      Were you there? Do you know what happened? Do you know for a fact that he was drinking? Do you know anything about this at all, other than the couple of paragraphs the news wrote? Do you realize how much her husband loves and misses her? I doubt you know the answers to any of these questions, so my suggestion to you is to not post insensitive crap or accuse a good man of drunk driving.
