Luebke, Elizabeth K. "Lizzy"
Elizabeth K. "Lizzy" Luebke, age 21, of Oshkosh, passed away unexpectedly on January 17, 2016. She was born on July 23, 1994 the daughter of Gary and Kathryn (Griese) Luebke. She attended and graduated from Omro High School where she had been active in band and drama. She had been an active member of the Pickett 4-H Club. She loved horses and was a member of the Waukau Flying Mane riding club and also greatly enjoyed art, music, reading, time spent with her family and friends and cats, Tilly Monster and Honey, and of course "Augie Doggie". She worked at Griese & Sons in Pickett as the Safety Director and had also worked at Crown Trophy in Oshkosh in graphic design which she loved. Lizzy was an amazing young woman (smart, talented and witty) with a beautiful soul and she was loved and will be missed by many.
Milwaukee County Medical Examiner's Office has identified the 21-year-old woman found dead near Keefe and Bremen in Milwaukee as Elizabeth Luebke of Oshkosh.
Officials say Luebke was found frozen in front of a home.
According to the medical examiner's report, Luebke "was reportedly in the area for a concert, and following the concert, a house party near the location from where she was found."
The report indicates the woman "was not dressed for the elements and noted to be frozen."
The report also says just before 4:30 a.m., a surveillance camera in the neighborhood "noted the decedent to collapse" at the address where she was found.
Luebke was found by a passer-by around 9:00 a.m.
The medical examiner's report indicates the temperature around the time 911 was called was "recorded as -5.8 degrees F with the wind chill recorded as -27.5 degrees F."
A friend shared a photo of Luebke with WITI. He said he knew Luebke as a sweet woman who went by the name of Lana Kane. She was at his home with friends from Oshkosh before she died.
"When she got here, she was really, really drunk and she got mad at her other friend and she stormed out," the man told WITI.
When Luebke didn't return, the medical examiner's report indicates someone called Luebke's mom, who drove to Milwaukee and filed a missing person's report.
"She's a really sweet person. I hung out with her at another show when I went to Oshkosh. She's a really nice person -- a really sweet person. It's really sad. She's only 21. Such a young age," the man said.
The report indicates Luebke had a history of binge drinking, but friends said she most recently had been sober for several weeks.
Police say no one should go out amid sub-zero, double-digit wind chills alone.
"If you can stay in groups -- at least with somebody -- and that's just general personal safety," Joel Dhein with the Glendale Police Department said.
Luebke's body was found frozen just around the corner from the home where the party was taking place.
The medical examiner's report indicates Luebke was not dressed for the bitterly cold weather -- as she was wearing party-type clothing, including shorts, stockings and a tank top. A sweater was found on the ground near her body.Above credit to: cw39.com/2016/01/19/wisconsin-woman-found-frozen-to-death-after-leaving-party-in-shorts/
