    The call came in as a suicide, but investigators are still looking at the details surrounding the case, according to the chief.  They sent a number of items to the state crime lab, but would not say what those items were.

    Police said the woman's ex-husband was in the home at the time of her death. He has not been charged.

    The chief of police told FOX13 they hope to have a ruling on the case -- whether it was a suicide or homicide -- within a few days.
