Rare illness may have caused death
JAFFREY (AP) – New Hampshire health officials are investigating whether a Jeffrey woman died of a rare illness related to mad cow disease.

An obituary in the Keene Sentinel said Judith L. Tieger died Nov. 6 from Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD), a degenerative brain disorder which belongs in the same family of illnesses as mad cow disease. State officials said it will take months of testing to determine the official cause of death.

Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease cannot be transmitted through the air or through casual contact. The state said there's no reason to think the unconfirmed case could pose a risk to public health.
