UPDATE: No visible trauma on bodies found in Tomah home


TOMAH, Wisconsin (WXOW) - Police said an autopsy showed no evidence of gun shot wounds, knife wounds or any method that would have cause a violent death of the couple.

Police found Michael Bobak, 35, and Tracey Small, 25, dead inside their Glendale Avenue home Monday morning.

The bodies were discovered about 10:30 in their home at 511 Glendale Ave.

Police said toxicology results may provide more answers on the cause of death.

Those results won't be available for several weeks.

Several neighbors told News 19 they never met the couple, but one said police presence in the neighborhood is not uncommon.

"People around here are actually really nice people, I mean, I get along with my neighbors. Like I said, if something does happen around here you usually know 'cause the cops kinda let you know. They keep an eye out," said neighbor Trent Koput.

Anyone with information on this case is urged to call the Tomah police.
