Body Found in Lockport is Identified

LOCKPORT, N.Y. - Lockport Police have identified a woman who was found lying in a snowbank on Davison Road early Saturday morning.

Lockport Police say Dawn Jehrio was found in front of the old Social Services building shortly before 6:30 a.m.

Police say Jehrio was taken to a local hospital, where she later died.

"I walked by and then I turned back and noticed that there was someone. Now at that point I realized it was a person," said Jim Smigelski, who was walking his dog when he found the woman in the snowbank.  "Had no idea, still don't know in that sense..but I realized somebody was in distress. I realized that whoever it was had an arm up."

Smigelski says it was at that point he called police and paramedics to help.
