Janesville police find woman dead inside home Saturday

Cause of death to be determined by autopsy Sunday

JANESVILLE, Wis. - Police are investigating a homicide Saturday after a Janesville woman was found dead inside a home.

No one has been arrested, but a man who was in the house was taken to Mercy Hospital with unspecified medical issues.

Deputy Chief Danny Davis said officers were called to the home Saturday about 3 a.m. to check on a woman who was reportedly late getting home. Police forced open a door and found Traci Moyer, 46, dead inside.

Davis said an autopsy will reveal the cause of death, but police are confident they're investigating a homicide. He also said the public isn't in danger.

The man's medical condition hasn't been released. Authorities identified him as Moyer's estranged husband, 54-year-old Krystopher Carlisle. Davis said it's not immediately clear whether he played any role in the apparent homicide.

The autopsy is scheduled for Sunday.
