The body of a woman found deceased Wednesday in Marystown  Cemetery has been identified as Jana Hart, 41. 

Johnson County Sheriff Adam King said Hart was from the Cleburne area and was believed to have been homeless. 

King added that there appear to be no signs of foul play in Hart's death and said he is awaiting the results of further tests from the Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office. 

King earlier this morning said the case was treated as a possible homicide initially pending the results of this morning's autopsy. 

Johnson County Jail inmate work crew members discovered Hart's body at about 11:55 a.m. Wednesday while mowing and cleaning the cemetery. 

Members of the work crew help maintain numerous cemeteries throughout the county. 

King this morning estimated that Hart's body may have been in the cemetery several days. 

King said he was not sure when the work crew last mowed Marystown Cemetery. 

The cemetery, which is on West Bethesda Road, dates back to the 1850s, according to Johnson County's website.
