Town of Peshtigo body identified; daughter arrested

MARINETTE COUNTY, Wis. (WBAY) - The Marinette County Sheriff's Office says it's arrested the daughter of an elderly woman found dead in the Town of Peshtigo.

The body of 89-year-old Ruby Bergold was found in her home on State Highway 64. An autopsy was completed Thursday morning. Sheriff Jerry Sauve told Action 2 News the death was "unusual" but not suspicious but would not provide details.

Sheriff Sauve says they're referring 60-year-old Paula Bergold, also from the Town of Peshtigo, to the district attorney's office for possible charges of failing to report a death and hiding a corpse.

"This is an isolated incident and the public is not in any danger," says Sheriff Sauve.

The sheriff's office and Medical Examiner are continuing to investigate the case.
