Detroit A woman who died after being "found hanging" on a fence on Woodward in Detroit on Monday night has been identified, authorities said.

The Wayne County Medical Examiner identified her as Nichole Wilson, 48. Police are investigating Wilson's death and the cause is still pending.

Wilson was found about 8:30 p.m. Monday night hanging from a fence at Woodward and Collingwood, said Latrice Crawford, a Detroit Police Department spokeswoman.  

Dave Fornell, deputy commissioner of the Detroit Fire Department, said medics arrived and administered CPR, but the woman was in a state of cardiac arrest and "her heart was not functional." 

On Thursday, Cpl. Dan Donakowski, a police department spokesman, told The News that “the investigator at the scene said there was no evidence of foul play," and that police are waiting for an official cause of death from the medical examiner.
