WASILLA, Alaska (AP) " Authorities in Alaska suspect a 74-year-old woman was killed by a moose.

Alaska State Troopers say the body of Pattie Cucinello was found Sunday in the driveway of her Wasilla home.

Troopers' spokeswoman Megan Peters says in an email that investigators suspect a moose attack because there were moose tracks at the scene.

The body was released to the state medical examiner, which will confirm the cause of death.
