Posted April 11, 2013
Neighbors called police the evening of April 9 after they found a local woman dead in a creek at the Spring Hill apartment complex at West Utica and Mound roads.
Shelby Township Police Chief Roland Woelkers said the 41-year-old woman was discovered face down in about 6 inches of water. He said emergency medical services personnel and police found that she had already died.
“It appears to be the result of some kind of medical problem,” Woelkers said, citing the medical examiner’s preliminary investigation. “No foul play is suspected.”
He said the medical examiner would be conducting an autopsy.
“She went out to do something. … (The residents) went looking for her and that’s when they found her,” Woelkers said.
