Woman found dead in rural Denton County

A woman was found dead Friday night in the 11000 block of Pruett Road in northwest Denton County, officials said.

The woman’s identity has not been released.

County sheriff’s officials said they responded after a neighbor discovered the woman dead in her house shortly before 9 p.m.

The woman is believed to have been dead for at least two weeks before she was discovered. The neighbor who found her body, officials said, last saw her about two weeks ago.

Sheriff’s office spokeswoman Sandi Brackeen said several dogs and four horses were taken into custody, but she could not say what their condition was.

Officials said Saturday there was no indication of foul play.
