Woman Found Dead In Woods

            NORTH HARWICH Following a brief, intensive search Wednesday afternoon, police located a deceased woman deep in the woods south of Queen Anne Road.

        As of Wednesday evening, the woman's death was being investigated by the Massachusetts State Police, with help from the Harwich Police Department and the Barnstable County Sheriff's Office.

            She has been identified as 42-year-old Ronni Williams of Harwich.  Police at the scene said there were no obvious signs of foul play, and an autopsy is being performed to determine the cause of her death.

            Williams was an accomplished photographer, and had gone out for a walk Tuesday morning in the vicinity of the power lines behind 133 Queen Anne Rd., police say.  She was reported missing Wednesday, and the police and fire department mounted a vigorous search of the area, using a state police helicopter, a tracking dog from the county sheriff's office, and off-road vehicles from several area fire departments.  Williams' remains were found off of the NSTAR right of way, near Flax Pond.  She apparently had been alone at the time of her death.

            The air temperature was about 16 degrees when the search was started, with wind chills that made it feel much colder.
