GREENVILLE — A woman found dead in her Greenville home on Sunday did not die as a result of a violent crime, according to Greenville Department of Public Safety Director Michael Pousak.
Sally May Case, 38, was found in her home on Harrison Street by her ex-husband who came to the home to pick up their 3-year-old son on Sunday afternoon. The child told his father the mother was upstairs.
The ex-husband went upstairs and found Case unresponsive with blood around her head.
“We are leaning toward a medical condition that caused her death,” said Pousak after receiving the results of the autopsy report today.
The blood found around Case’s body is believed to be from a head wound she received.
“It is quite possible she received it when she fell,” Pousak said.
The medical examiner was unable to determine the cause of death and has sent blood and tissue samples to a laboratory for further analysis.
“At the earliest, we won’t see results for six to eight weeks,” Pousak said. “There is nothing obvious that caused her death, but we can rule out that she didn’t suffer from a violent crime, which is good.”
Pousak said the child was dropped off at the home Saturday night and was there until the father came to pick him up between 1:30 and 2 p.m. Sunday.
“He was there for some hours by himself,” Pousak said.
The boy is currently staying with his father and other family members.
