An autospy is scheduled to help police determine how a woman from Pinehouse died on the weekend.

RCMP say the body of 49-year-old Ida Smith was found lying next to her snowmobile around 9:00 Saturday morning.

She was found on the ice at the south end of Pinehouse Lake.

RCMP major crime investigators are looking into the matter, but at this stage, the Mounties are simply calling it a “sudden death”.
