Police said that a Greenville woman found dead on the floor in the bedroom of her home Sunday was not the victim of a violent crime.
But they don’t yet know what killed her.
According to Mike Pousak, Director of Public Safety for the City of Greenville, officers responded to the 600 block of Harrison about 2 p.m. Sunday, December 9, after the woman’s ex-husband arrived to pick up their 3-year-old son and found her dead.
According to Pousak, Sally May Case, 38, of Greenville, was bleeding from the head, but there was nothing obvious that caused her death. Crime scene techs from the Michigan State Police surveyed the scene, and an autopsy was done earlier this week. “We are not yet able to determine the cause of death,” said Pousak, “but she was not a victim of a violent crime.” He explained that blood and tissue samples would be sent out for analysis but that could take weeks for results to come back.
Pousak said that the woman and her ex-husband had a good relationship and that the man had been cooperative with police. The 3-year-old boy is staying with his father and other family members.
