Woman Freezes to Death in Shorts After Concert
A young woman who went to a concert froze to death after arguing with a friend and walking out into subzero temperatures.
Surveillance video shows Elizabeth Luebke, 21, collapsing in the snow at around 4:30 a.m. Saturday near the Milwaukee, Wisconsin, home she left after an argument with a friend post-concert.
Luebke was dressed in only shorts, stockings, and a tank top, and succumbed to the night's frigid temps, which hovered at negative 6 degrees when her body was found at 9 a.m.
Wind chills had dropped to nearly -30.
The man whose home she left before she died said she had been drinking. Friends at the party thought she had been picked up, but did not know she was fighting for her life outside the home.
Luebke's mother said that, last October, her daughter was hospitalized with 5 times the blood alcohol limit to legally drive. The 21-year-old posted on social media in December she had quit drinking and stayed sober for a month.
