Inmates mowing a cemetery north of Cleburne on Wednesday found the body of a woman who appeared to have died three to five days earlier, according to the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office.

The woman was identified as 41-year-old Jana Hart, Deputy Aaron Pitts said in a statement Thursday afternoon. Hart was from the Cleburne area and appeared to be homeless, he said.

Police did not find any signs of foul play and are waiting for further results from the Johnson County Medical Examiner’s Office, Pitts said.

Responding deputies secured the cemetery and conducted a crime scene investigation, King said.
