An autopsy has been ordered for the body of a woman who was found dead in her backyard in Nederland Friday afternoon.
Police say it happened around 12:50 p.m. in the 2900 block of Avenue G.
Investigators say the woman lived alone. She apparently passed out. A police spokesperson said it appears her shirt got caught on a picket fence and strangled her.
Authorities have not identified her, but did say they believe she's in her early 40's
