Molly Hatchet rocker BOBBY INGRAM's wife was discovered dead on Thursday morning (01APR04), although police have yet to determine the cause of death

The veteran lead guitarist's 33-year-old spouse STEPHANIE was found deceased in the couple's home, 25 miles (40 kilometres) south of Jacksonville, Florida.

A top-level investigation is taking place and an autopsy has been scheduled but, according to Clay County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman MARY JUSTINO, there is currently no indication of foul play.

Justino explains, "When it's not obvious what caused the death, it's departmental policy that 'Major Crimes' is assigned to the case.

"It is not yet known who discovered the body and notified authorities, or if Ingram was in the house at the time."
