APOLLO BEACH (FOX 13) - Hillsborough County Sheriffs are investigating the death of a 70-year-old woman who was found dead in an Apollo Beach swimming pool Sunday morning. Reports

from the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office Monday revealed more details about the incident.

The victim, identified as 70-year-old Gale Tucker, was last seen by her husband Saturday night, sleeping in her bed. He told deputies she wasn't in the house when he woke up Sunday morning, and he assumed she had gone for a walk.

Gale's family said they began looking for her when she hadn't returned home at 11 a.m. Within minutes, her adult son found her floating face down in the pool at the home.

Someone pulled her from the pool, and declared deceased once paramedics arrived.

Deputies say the Hillsborough County Medical Examiner's Office will conduct an autopsy to determine the exact cause of death. Detectives do not suspect foul play and are working to see if any pre-existing medical conditions played a role in what happened.
