The 55-year-old owner of a home for sale was found dead in her bed by two potential buyers inspecting the house.
Justin and Colleen McKeen were walking through the house, while real estate agent Linda Chabucos-Galow, stood in the dining room. She then heard Colleen McKeen scream.
“I thought, ‘What’s wrong?’ Maybe it was a dead mouse or something,” Chabucos-Galow said. But then she peered into the bedroom and saw the body of Linda L. O’Leary.
An autopsy determined O’Leary had been dead for two to three weeks, Rock County Coroner Jenifer Keach said Wednesday. The cause of death remained under investigation, but the woman appeared to have died of natural causes and no foul play was suspected, Keach said.
A Coldwell Banker First United Realty agent who listed the house, said it was for sale “for a while.”
