Green Bay police are investigating the death of a 60-year-old woman, but they don't consider it suspicious. 

Her name hasn't been released.  The woman had taken a taxi cab to her home.  After she was dropped off, police say it appears she fell while trying to retrieve a key she'd dropped, then hit her head.  Her body was found by a relative.  Bitter cold temperatures have blanketed northeastern Wisconsin for several weeks.  Police say the case emphasizes the importance of drivers waiting to make sure a rider gets inside their home before leaving.
