An autopsy is scheduled today on a woman found dead in an ice shanty on Lake Winnebago in Calumet County. The body was identified Sunday as 30-year-old Sara Meyer of Chilton. 

A 37-year-old man who was also found unconscious in the ice shanty was flown to a medical center in Neenah, and was then transferred to a hospital in Appleton. His condition was not disclosed.

Calumet County sheriff’s deputies were called late Saturday afternoon to the ice fishing shelter located on Lake Winnebago near Brothertown. Deputies and the county medical examiner continue to investigate.
