A woman was found dead outside on Cross Road in Bellmore late Wednesday night, amid a winter storm that dumped nearly a foot of snow on the area, according to police.

Police could not comment yet on a cause of death, but are investigating the incident, which was "more likely than not" storm-related, according to the spokesman.
