JANESVILLE — Police say a Janesville woman found dead in the Fourth Ward was at the home of her estranged husband. According to a news release, Janesville police report that they found Tracy L. Moyer, 46, dead of an apparent homicide early today inside a house in the 300 block of West Racine Street.
According to a news release from the Janesville Police Department, police found Moyer dead in the home of her estranged husband, Krystopher R. R. Carlisle.
Carlisle was in the house too, and police reported he was in “medical distress.” Carlisle is being treated at Mercy Hospital and Trauma Center, where he was in critical condition with undisclosed medical problems, a nurse supervisor at the hospital said.
Police responded to Carlisle’s home about 3 a.m. to check the welfare of Moyer, who was “overdue getting home,” Deputy Chief Danny Davis said.
Police have not released details of the Moyer’s death, and they have not made an arrest, but investigators are treating the death as a homicide, Davis said.
It’s not clear if Carlisle played any role in the apparent homicide. Davis declined to say if an arrest is expected, but he said the public should not be concerned about the safety threat of a suspect on the loose.
“That’s one of the things we’re investigating, but we don’t know anything at this point,” Davis said.
A Gazette reporter and photographer on scene shortly after 9 a.m. today witnessed officials from the Rock County Coroner’s office wheeling out a gurney with a body covered by a sheet. Police detectives were in and out of the house, which was cordoned off with police lines.
One officer who declined to give information was seen collecting evidence in a car in parked in the driveway of the house.
Coroner Jenifer Keach declined to give any details about the situation, but she said an autopsy for Moyer is scheduled on Sunday.
Neighbors said Moyer had lived in the home, although she apparently had moved to a different address somewhat recently, one neighbor said.
Davis confirmed that Moyer had not been living with Carlisle leading up to her death. He said no one else but Moyer and Carlisle were in the house when police arrived, and police were still trying to learn why Moyer was at the house. It’s not clear where Moyer had been living.
Davis and neighbors said a teen daughter of Moyer had tried to contact the woman by phone late Friday or early today, and couldn’t reach her. One neighbor said the girl had knocked on the couple’s door at 2 a.m. Saturday, but nobody answered the door.
The neighbor said that he and one of Moyer’s two teen daughters then discovered a car running at the house, and the woman’s cellphone apparently was inside the car.
It’s not clear how long the woman was dead before police discovered her body.
Another neighbor said people Moyer works with had told him that she didn’t show up Friday night for the late shift of work at a Walworth factory.
Police do not plan to release more information tonight.
The Gazette will continue to update this story as it unfolds.
