Woman found dead in Colo. hot spring

RIDGWAY, Colo. (AP) – A woman has been found dead floating in a southwestern Colorado hot spring.

Fifty-year-old Theresa J. Powell of Telluride was discovered floating face-down Friday morning in Orvis Hot Springs, about a two-hour drive from Durango.

Powell signed in to the front desk at the spa resort Thursday afternoon and was last seen by other guests just before midnight.

Authorities say they believe alcohol was involved in the death. Foul play isn’t suspected, though an autopsy is pending.
