LAFAYETTE, WI (WTAQ) - A woman missing for five days was found dead late Sunday in Chippewa County.
Sheriff’s deputies said an acquaintance found the body of 33-year-old Courtney Hagel in a wooded area near railroad tracks, about 200 yards from where she was last seen in the town of Lafayette.
Officials said there were no signs that Hagel was wounded, and foul play is not suspected. An autopsy will be performed to determine the cause of death.
Sheriff’s deputies said Hagel threatened to harm herself last Tuesday night, when she walked away from a mobile home near Lake Wissota.
She has family around Bloomer, but officials said she spent most of her time in Minnesota’s Twin Cities.
