Investigators say a killer waited in the cold and the dark outside an empty cabin to murder Kathy Nameth.
Nameth was attacked and stabbed outside her parents’ empty cabin around 7 p.m. Saturday. The cabin was closed for the season and Nameth wasn't expected.
That leads investigators to believe the killer wasn't someone who followed Nameth in from town, but rather someone who knew she was going out to the cabin that night.
The sheriff's department said Nameth was able to fight back against her attacker, so the killer likely has many scratches and bruises.
Funeral services are scheduled for Thursday in Antigo.
