BEDFORD, Ohio — A 92-year-old woman has died after authorities say she apparently wandered outside of the Bedford assisted living facility she was living in and fell down in the cold elements.

According to a police report, nurses from Woodside Senior Living on Rockside Road located Annie Lee Luckett's body around 6 a.m. Saturday. Luckett was a resident in the memory care unit and "unable to care for herself." Officers believe she exited the building through an alarmed door without tripping the alarm, and eventually slipped on the ice, leaving herself unable to get up.

Workers at the facility say they last saw Luckett around 3 a.m. while she was using the restroom, roughly three hours before she was finally found. Police say there were no signs of foul play in connection with her death.

The incident is now being investigated by the Ohio Attorney General, per protocol. The Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner's Office is in the process of conducting an autopsy.
