(PEKIN) - A 41-year-old woman was found dead in her home early Thursday morning and what happened remains under investigation.

An autopsy was performed this morning on the body of 41-year-old Kristi L. Williams at the Kentucky Medical Examiner's Office in Louisville, KY. The preliminary results showed Williams died due to severe trauma to her neck area.

According to Indiana State Police who are assisting with the investigation, these results are only preliminary and the final determination of the cuase of death will not be determined until all results from the autopsy are confirmed, which typically takes up to six weeks.

This investigation is continuing with no further information available for release at this time.

Washington County Sheriff's Department Captain Roger Newlon says it may be a while before police know what happened.

Newlon confimred Williams was found dead after police received a 911 call from her boyfriend just before 7:30 a.m. Thursday. Police rushed to the Williams' home at 8531 State Road 335.

Neighbors say the couple have been dating for years, and it is heart breaking.

The boyfriend, whose name has not been released, has hired an attorney.

A forensic team from Indianapolis worked the scene throughout the day Thursday to determine exactly what happened.
