SAN LEON — No foul play was immediately suspected in the death of a woman found hanging in her backyard Tuesday morning, an official said.

The body of a 52-year-old woman was found about 9 a.m. hanging from a rope attached to a tree branch in the 900 block of Seventh Street in San Leon, said John Florence, a spokesman for the Galveston County Medical Examiner’s Office.

An autopsy was scheduled for today, Florence said.
