UPDATE: JANESVILLE (WIFR) -- Police have identified the victim and are calling the case a homicide investigation. Police say they found the body of 46-year-old Tracy Moyer Saturday morning at her estranged husband’s house on Racine Street.

The victim's best friend says Moyer's kids were worried about her when she didn't come home last night so they called police.

According to the Janesville Gazette, officers found a car running outside of the home. When they went into the house they found Moyer’s body and Krystopher Carlisle, who neighbors say is the victim's husband.

Police say Carlisle was taken to the hospital for undisclosed medical problems. The Gazette says he is currently in critical condition. Moyer's friend says the couple was going through a divorce.

“She was a really kind lady, nice she would do anything for anybody. I really am just thinking about her kids a lot and how they're feeling and what they're going through because I know losing a parent isn't easy. I can't believe she's gone," said Moyer's friend.

Moyer's friend preferred not to be on camera. Moyer has three kids, two of them are in their 20s, the other is in her teens.

An autopsy is scheduled for Sunday. No one is in custody.
