MAZOMANIE (WKOW) -- Authorities are investigating what they're calling a suspicious death in Mazomanie.
Dane County Sheriff Dave Mahoney tells 27 News a family member discovered an injured woman in a home on Scott Street around 7 p.m. Sunday. The family member called 911 and investigators spent all night and into Monday evening working to determine just what happened.
Authorities believe the 43-year-old woman died sometime Sunday at the home. The medical examiner's office pronounced her dead on scene.
Sheriff Mahoney declined to elaborate on the nature of the woman's injuries until he sees the results of an autopsy scheduled Monday afternoon.
Right now, Mahoney tells 27 News investigators are following up on leads, interviewing friends, family and neighbors to try to figure out a possible motive for what happened in this suspicious death, but he says the public is safe.
"The direction that we're going would point to there is no public threat, we're investigating it as if it were a known offender, but we're still investigating that for sure," Mahoney says. "There's nothing that points to there should be a threat to the community of Mazomanie or to the local school district."
Mahoney says at this time he is not aware of any previous threats toward the woman who died.
More information on the death is expected to be released Tuesday morning after the autopsy is complete and investigators are briefed.
Anyone with information on this case is asked to call the Dane County Tip Line at (608) 284-6900.
