La Crosse Woman Dies Of Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever

Cases of Rocky Mountain spotted fever are rare in Wisconsin, but the tick-borne disease has apparently killed a La Crosse woman. 

The victim was bitten by a tick while she was camping last May.  She was diagnosed in mid-June and died a few days later.  Her name hasn't been released, but health officials say she was in her late-50s.  Rocky Mountain spotted fever is typically found in the central and southeastern U-S.
