July 12, 2018 - 11:39 am

OAK PARK (WWJ) - Police are investigating after a woman apparently drowned in a pool at her Oakland County home.

According to police, officers were called a home in the 24000 block of Sherman St, between 10 Mile Rd. and Oak Park Blvd. at around 9:30 p.m. Wednesday after a family member returned home to find the 69-year-old woman dead in family's in-ground pool.

There were no signs of foul play, police said, and no crime is suspected. 

While it's believed to be a drowning, the Oakland County Medical Examiner will perform an autopsy to determine a cause of death, to see if there were any other contributing factors. 

The woman's name was not released.
