Relatives find body of Taylor woman in her home

The Detroit News

Taylor police are investigating the death of a 31-year-old woman found Wednesday in her apartment.

Relatives found the body of Stephanie Rae Buchanan about 5 p.m. at her home in the 7100 block of Polk Street after an apartment manager had been unable to reach her for several days, police said in a statement Thursday.

The cause of death was not immediately apparent Wednesday night, Police Chief Mary Sclabassi said.

The Wayne County Medical Examiner’s Office is ruling Buchanan’s death “indeterminate,” meaning a homicide, accidental or natural causes cannot be ruled out at this time, police said.

Toxicology results are pending and could take several weeks.

Police are continuing to investigate.
