Cheesemaker Mandy Reed's Death Ruled Accidental
Mandy Reed, award-winning cheesemaker and boss at the Swaledale Cheese Company in Yorkshire, England, died in February after a celebratory dinner with her son and his friends. She left the group in a taxi, but never made it back to her house. She was later found in a neighbor's garden.
Dr Peter Cooper, who carried out the post-mortem examination on Mrs Reed's body, said she died of a combination of acute alcohol intoxication and exposure to cold.
