Witnesses say the woman stopped her vehicle on the eastbound shoulder of the bridge, about 100 yards west of the Wisconsin shoreline, leaving her 11-year-old daughter in the vehicle. The woman then climbed the railing and jumped to her death.
The woman's body was found by the use of an air boat. The woman is 48-years-old and from Pierce County. Her identity is being withheld pending notification of her family. The daughter is now in the care of other family members in Wisconsin.
