WATERFORD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) – A woman has been found dead in an Oakland County home surrounded by many live animals, including cats, a dog, rabbits and a raccoon.

Waterford Township police say Friday that an autopsy has ruled out foul play in the death of 47-year-old Tracey Woodcox. A toxicology report is expected within two to three weeks.

The 55-year-old homeowner found Woodcox’ body Thursday in a bedroom. Police say Woodcox had recently moved into the home, northwest of Detroit.

Animal control officers removed the animals Thursday. Police say the house was uninhabitable.
